The best in what i found until now is Brian Crain and Rita Chepurchenko, piano violin duet BUT ... it is a little sad. I am looking for some slow songs in violin because i transpose them in a puppet maronette show and the marionette is playing the violin. If is to fast the bow movement.... the marionette is tremble to much.....On Brian's music I have heard a lot from my audience that is a little sad the song...anyway .... anyone help me whit some not so sad slow violin songs?
As an example the marionette ....i present to you ...Niccolo
Larghetto (Largo) from Serse Opera-(Xerxes)-HWV 40-Georg Friedrich Haendel
Excellent puppeteering. There are many to choose from, however, these come to mind right away.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright
There are excellent musicians here who can advise you.
I am not a professional musician, I can't advice you and any "suggestions" are nothing more than some of my personal preferences. I hope I am not mistaken I just read that...
