Midnight on the Water may be Mark O'Connor's best classical album yet. The album is made up entirely of his solo recitals, which have earned him great acclaim, not only from fans but from critics. Midnight on the Water fulfills all of the high expectations fans and critics may have had, as it's filled with lush, sympathetic, and unexpected readings of classical and folk pieces alike. Anyone who has pigeonholed O'Connor as just another fiddler will have their perceptions come crashing down after hearing this record.
