Mark O'Connor's Appalachia Waltz Trio: Crossing Bridges CD

The Appalachia Waltz Trio's 2003 album Crossing Bridges, like their concerts, features the music Mark O'Connor has become known for... gorgeous, compositions that reflect his roots, his musical interests and influences...genre-crossing music infused with folk, Celtic and classical shadings.

New York's Newsday calls the trio's music "Coplandesque... a new type of American world music..." The Boston Herald has called it "...a complex breed of modern classical chamber music.. melodic and lyrical... melodies and 19th century fiddle music (that) floats in and out like spirits.
