Two composers separated by continents and time meet in this engaging performance. Amy Beach’s Symphony No. 2 incorporates music of England, Ireland, and Scotland into the first symphony written and published by an American woman composer.

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D Major is as timeless as it is technically difficult. The award-winning violinist, Minami Yoshida, joins the GSO for her US debut. Yoshida was a major prize winner at the Montreal and Sibelius competitions and has performed with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, and others.
