Description
Amy Beach (1867–1944) was the first American woman to succeed as a composer of large-scale musical works. The most frequently performed composer of her generation, she became famous in both the U.S. and Europe. We've long loved her solo piano works, but were bowled over by these orchestral offerings.

"One of the most valuable releases yet in Naxos's American Classics series. Composed in 1898–99, Amy Beach's ambitious, singularly impressive Piano Concerto is at long last coming in from the cold. Alan Feinberg brings extra charisma to bear without any loss of delicacy or poetry…. Schermerhorn and his eager Nashville band more than hold their own by the side of Neeme Jarvi and the Detroit SO. Theirs is a convincingly paced, tidy performance with real fire in its belly and plenty of character. The sound is truthfully balanced and eminently vivid. A thoroughly enjoyable issue, whose claims are strengthened by a lucid booklet essay from Beach scholar Adrienne Fried Block."—Gramophone

"It is Naxos who have had the happy idea of coupling Amy Beach's attractive Piano Concerto with the equally diverting 'Gaelic Symphony,' which was written in 1894–6 after she had been impressed with the Boston premičre of Dvorák's New World Symphony and determined to build her own symphony by drawing on four traditional Irish tunes of 'simple, rugged and unpretentious beauty'. Yet much of the invention is her own and of high quality to match the concertante work for piano. Alan Feinberg's performance of the latter is in the grand romantic tradition, with splendid digital bravura in the finale, balanced by warm and often passionately lyrical support from the excellent Nashville orchestra. The Symphony receives a no less sympathetic and committed reading under Kenneth Schermerhorn."—Penguin Guide
