The FIDDLE CONCERTO for Violin and Orchestra is Mark O'Connor's first orchestral score, composed when he was 31 years old in 1992-93. A few years later it was recorded for Warner Bros. featuring the Concordia Orchestra with Marin Alsop conducting and the composer as the violin soloist. The recording was named by the BMG Classical Catalog as one of the top ten classical recordings of 1995.
The composition was reviewed by a distinguished panel of composers and was awarded a Meet The Composer grant for another original concerto by O'Connor. Beginning with the premiers in 1993 through the Fiddle Concerto's subsequent performances in to 1998, the year of this publication, it has received more performances with orchestra than any other violin concerto composed in the last 50 years. The violin solo does not include written out cadenzas as they are always improvised by the composer/soloist when performed (as is the case with the 1995 recording).
