Here are two great musicians tackling some warhorses, the Schumann A minor violin sonata and the Prokofiev F minor sonatas (both violin and piano pieces). Here's the important details: Ms. Saldanha is currently doing a D.M.A. in piano at Stony Brook, which is a big deal, Ms. Morris is also currently in the same D.M.A. program for violin, so two big deals, and as far as important things about the composers or these pieces, I think the best way to describe the importance of these two pieces in juxtaposition is what playing those pieces says about the performers. When you tackle the first Beethoven violin sonata, or the first Beethoven piano trio, you might be a plucky and precocious music student anywhere from 12-15, or giving it a polished treatment at 21, or you're Menahem Pressler and Henryk Szeryng in your 40's, 50's, or 60's trying to say something new with it as a full adult. Tackling the Schumann A minor and the Prokofiev F minor seriously from pieces like early Beethoven, as a classical musician, is like going from playing golf in Norman Levy park for fun, and then attempting to compete in the US Open. It's a big deal, and they're both REAL hard. Come and enjoy!
