Debussy: Sonate pour violon et piano - l Allegro vivo - ll Intermède - lll Finale
Ravel: Sonate pour violon et piano - l Allegretto - ll Blues - lll Perpetuum mobile

C. Franck: Sonate pour violon et piano - l Allegretto ben Moderato - ll Allegro -

lll Recitativo-Fantasia - lV Allegretto poco mosso
