ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mike Mitchell's Classics on Conners offers some of the most beautiful classical works played on handmade Arthur Conner string instruments (violins, mandolin, bass): The well-known Bach Double Concerto in D minor is played masterfully as a violin and mandolin duet, accompanied by Cara Modisett on the harpsichord. The Handel Violin Sonata in A Major, one of the most beloved violin sonatas, captures the authentic baroque style (violin and harpsichord). The Bach "Air" and The Bruch Concerto show off the complexities of the handmade violins. Massenet's romantic Meditation from "Thais", Borowski's joyous "Adoration", and the hauntingly beautiful "Danny Boy" make this collection of songs a favorite for all.

Mike Mitchell plays the violins, Jeff Midkiff plays a Conner mandolin, Montana Young is featured on The Bruch (playing a Conner violin), John McBroom plays a Conner bass on "Danny Boy", and Cara Modisett accompanies on piano and harpsichord.

Arthur Conner is a Blue Ridge born and bred violin-maker in Floyd County. His violins are well-known throughout the country and bluegrass worlds. Mike Mitchell specifically chose this album as a way to show-case the beauty of the handmade string instruments when featured in a classical style. His violins (and more) can be seen and heard at Mitchell Music Co. in Floyd, VA
