Notes and Editorial Reviews

About Amy Beach's Symphony in E minor, Op. 32
"Her Symphony in E minor operates at a high level of accomplishment and has a winnig charm, particularly its delightful and inventive second movement. Once heard, this haunting movement is difficult to exorcize for one's memory. A very persuasive performance from the Detroit orchestra under Neeme Järvi, and good recorded sound." - Penguin Guide to Compact Discs and DVDs - 2005/06 Edition
