Amy Beach, Passionate Victorian: The Life and Work of an American Composer, 1867-1944 by Adrienne Fried Block

Amy Marcy Cheney Beach (1867-1944), the most widely performed composer of her generation, was the first American woman to succeed as a creator of large-scale art music. Her "Gaelic" Symphony, given its premiere by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1896, was the first work of its kind by an American woman to be performed by an American orchestra. Almost all of her more than 300 works were published soon after they were composed and performed, and today her music is finding new advocates and audiences for its energy, intensity, and sheer beauty. Yet, until now, no full-length critical biography of Beach's life or comprehensive critical overview of her music existed. This biography admirably fills that gap, fully examining the connections between Beach's life and work in light of social currents and dominant ideologies.

Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival, Carol Wincenc (flute)

American Flute Quintets features music performed by renowned flutist Carol Wincenc and four founding members of the festival's artist faculty... A large set of variations on a lullaby by Amy Beach (1867-1944) is the disc's sturdy anchor, but Arthur Foote's (1853-1937) aromatic "Night Pieces" and Joan Tower's (b. 1938) insistent, forceful "Rising" hold even greater appeal.

EAC rip | FLAC + CUE + LOG | 3 Discs | Full Scans | 1.43 Gb
Genre ~ Hard Bop | Soul Jazz
Label ~ Mosaic Records

Of all the volumes in the Mosaic Select series – as of this writing there are eight – none is more welcome or unexpected than this set by the late saxophonist, composer, and arranger, Curtis Amy. What these three CDs contain are Amy's entire six-album output for the Pacific Jazz label which includes his masterpiece, Katanga!. Amy's star continued to shine in different contexts after he left the label, as a tough tenor with Gerald Wilson and Ray Charles, as a soloist on the Doors' Soft Parade and L.A. Woman albums, and of course, as an arranger and bandleader in R&B singer Merry Clayton's group (the pair were married). ~ AllMusic
