Violin Sonata no. 3, Op. 45

Edvard Grieg started composing his third and last violin sonata in 1886. The Violin Sonata no. 3, Op. 35 is widely considered an example of his musical nationalism, as it contains references to Norwegian folk music. Whereas the first two sonatas were written in a matter of weeks, this sonata took him several months to complete, and remains the most popular of the three works, and has established itself in the standard repertoire.
