i have been a fan of american session country/bluegrass fiddler Mark O'Connor as an amazing player but also as a composer i was recently blown away by his American Seasons album with Boston-based Metamorphosen Chamber Orchestra. Not vivaldi style but shade of Copland, and even Gershwin.
Has anyone else heard the album with a 4 part Concerto, a Suite and an adaptation of his lovely Appalachia Waltz ?
