Beach - Gaelic Symphony

Schubert - Symphony no. 9 "The Great"

A super full-blooded symphonic concert featuring a wonderful symphony by America’s first successful female composer alongside one of the greats of the world’s concert repertoire.

Amy Beach’s Gaelic Symphony is considered a landmark composition in American classical music at a time when female composers faced significant challenges and barriers.

The second piece is Schubert's Symphony No. 9. Its combination of emotional depth, melodic beauty, and structural innovation has contributed to its enduring popularity.
