Notes and Editorial Reviews

On the heels of their sold-out US tour and unanimously acclaimed albums Appalachia Waltz (SK 68460) and Appalachian Journey (SK 66782), Appalachian Journey Live in Concert captures three of the world's most extraordinary musicians live in concert, along with some very special guests, from their sold out performance at New York City's Avery Fisher Hall in April 2000. The unique and compelling trio of cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Mark O'Connor and bassist Edgar Meyer reaches a whole new level of artistic and technical prowess as they weave their way through a wide variety of musical genres. This captivating hour-plus concert video contains music from Appalachian Journey including Meyer's "1B", Stephen Foster's timeless classic "Hard Read more Times Come Again No More" featuring James Taylor, and Foster's "Slumber My Darling" with vocals by Alison Krauss. Krauss joins the trio for O'Connor's instrumental arrangement of the sea chanty "Fisher's Hornpipe", a fiddle duel between Krauss and O'Connor. Also included is the dynamic title composition from Appalachia Waltz, and many more selections. Read less
