BEACH Symphony in E Minor, “Gaelic”
DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”
Dvořák’s monumental Ninth Symphony, titled “From the New World”, paints images of rural American landscapes, trains cutting through the wild west, and towering mountains. Amy Beach was a champion of American and female composers, embodying the spirit of Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony in her own music from her experience growing up in Henniker. Yes, Beach grew up in Henniker, New Hampshire. Amy Beach’s “Gaelic” Symphony looks back to the cultures that immigrants brought to the New World.
