Amy Beach's only symphony is fully representative of her late Romantic style. Composed in 1896, the work makes use of several Irish folksongs as thematic material. The Gaelic symphony received favorable reviews and was subsequently performed by orchestras in both the USA and Europe in the years leading up to the World War I. Like most music of the American late-Romantic school, this lovely symphony was sadly neglected until recently. Thanks to an increased interest in the works of women composers and a general revival of interest in the American late-Romantic school, the Gaelic Symphony has seen a fair number of performances and recordings in recent years. This is a new, digitally enhanced reprint of the score originally published in 1897 by Arthur P. Schmidt - incorporating the list of corrections submitted by the composer shortly after publication.

  • I. Allegro con fuoco 
  • II. Alla siciliana. Allegro vivace. Andante 
  • III. Lento con molta espressione 
  • IV. Allegro di molto
