Fiddle Sonata for violin, cello and piano composed and adapted by Mark O’Connor was a commission from the Library Of Congress in Washington D.C. It was premiered in Jefferson Hall during their prestigious ‘97-’98 chamber music season. The Library was featuring piano in their programming that year therefore requesting O’Connor to compose utilizing the instrument. The premier was broadcast on NPR’s “Performance Today” and was also the centerpiece for a national public radio special “America’s Fiddler, Mark O’Connor at the Library Of Congress”. Although O’Connor did not utilize the piano as a back up instrument in his childhood fiddling contests, it does have a tradition accompanying fiddlers in Scotland, Shetland and Canada. For inspiration O’Connor used these influences as well as those from the French Canadians.
