College Hornpipe for violin, cello and doublebass is a traditional fiddle tune that Mark O'Connor and Edgar Meyer arranged for their album with Yo-Yo Ma entitled "Appalachia Waltz". O'Connor learned this tune from fiddling legend Benny Thomasson at an early age. Thomasson developed the parts of the tune as incorporated in this arrangement. O'Connor added a variation to each of the Thomasson parts in addition. After Meyer finished out the arrangement with his bass lines,"College Hornpipe" has a new and different life from the one found on the early O'Connor recording "Soppin' The Gravy". The trio performed the piece for a nation-wide television audience at President's Clinton Inaugural Gala. The music is suited for advanced and intermediate levels.


Original music printed from the composer’s manuscripts.
