Notes & Reviews:

In the Double Violin Concerto O'Connor utilizes some of his most important musical inspirations: blues and jazz. The CD also features O'Connor's much-loved "Appalachia Waltz," the "Johnny Appleseed Suite," and a beautiful rendition of "Amazing Grace."

"O'Connor draws on the same well that Haydn and Mozart did, but his belongs to this continent and this time... The playing here is exceptional. Soloists and orchestra shine. This is one slice of the future of American Music. It is time to embrace the new century and time to disassemble the pyramids of cultural hierarchy. Let's stop calling this "pops" and embrace those warm bodies in the seats." -American Record Guide

"A double violin concerto that prompted the kind of mid-performance applause usually heard in a jazz club." - Chicago Sun-Times
