Saturday Morning Music: Poem for Carlita
Mark O'Connor is an American composer and violinist. Much of his work is in the area of bluegrass, but he also does some classical work with a distinctly American flavor. Here he plays his composition "Poem for Carlita" at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall with his pals Yo-Yo Ma (cello) and Edgar Meyer (double bass).
The three of them recorded two albums together - Appalachian Waltz and Appalachian Journey - which contain both original works and "covers" of traditional music with guest vocalists like James Taylor and Alison Krauss. This song is from Appalachian Journey.
