Limerock adapted for violin and cello is an arrangement of one of the most beautiful hoedowns in American fiddling literature. Originally a two part tune, Texas fiddling pioneer Benny Thomasson arranged a version that approximates the one most performed today. Mark O’Connor and Edgar Meyer built upon the Thomasson variations to create a unique and thrilling violin and bass duet that first appeared on O’Connor’s Grammy winning recording, "New Nashville Cats". O’Connor has adapted the 2nd part to include violin, viola and doublebass to offer four different versions of the arrangement. "Limerock" is a fine example of how a tune O’Connor learned by ear as a youth evolved into a virtuoso piece in a classical setting. It is most suitable for advanced and intermediate levels.
Original music printed from the composer’s manuscripts.
