Beautiful little piece
In another thread I asked for suggestions for a piece for violin and chamber orchestra to play with our "Baroque and modern music ensemble". (I am grateful for the suggestions and am looking into several options now). While looking for music I came across a beautiful little piece by the Danish composer Ludolf Nielsen. It is his romance for violin and symphony orchestra op 20 and the style is late romantic, so it did not fit the bill for our ensemble, but I performed the violin and piano version at our chamber music by orchestra members concert this tuesday. No too difficult (if you are comfortable to venture into the eternal snow area of the fingerboard once in a while) - actually the biggest difficulty was for the pianist to read the handwritten sheet music that is available on IMSLP. So if you are looking for a short (6-7 minutes) piece this is highly recommended.
From the same part of the world there's another nice little Romance by Gustav Helsted. Not being anyone's idea of a virtuoso I searched IMSLP for violin/piano Romances and also came up with Dvorak (strangely neglected), Fibich, Hubay, Sinigaglia and several others worth investigating
I'm not sure I would describe the Dvorak Romance as neglected, but it is certainly beautiful. When I have time I will look up the OP's suggestion.
Also the one by Svendsen is beautiful
I have managed to find two recordings. One with orchestra and hungarian/danish violinist Anton Kontra and one with piano and danish violinist Karen Humle. One is on Spotify and one on Naxos Music Library.
