American composer Amy Beach wrote her Romance in 1893, the same year as Dvořák's Sonatine written when he was living in America. Prokofiev wrote his Five Melodies as Songs without Words for a tour in California with soprano, later arranging them for violin and piano when he was back in Paris  The  virtuosic piece by Frank Bridge was discovered in manuscript a century after the premiere by Madeleine and recorded on her album 'Violin Songs' along with the Prokofiev pieces. The programme culminates in Brahms's third violin sonata.
