Appalachia Waltz by Mark O’Connor is the title track from the album featuring O’Connor, Yo-Yo Ma, and Edgar Meyer. “Appalachia Waltz,” composed in 1993 while visiting New Mexico and dreaming of Appalachia, might well be one of Mark O’Connor’s most-loved compositions. It utilizes musical inspiration from Scandinavian and Appalachian folk fiddling, while crafted into a classical music setting. Here, O’Connor has adapted his waltz for String Orchestra without soloist. The orchestration is suited for all levels.
