Description

from two piano pieces, Op 54

Amy Beach was celebrated during her lifetime as the foremost female composer of the United States, and her writing was frequently inspired by the folk music of America and Britain. Originally for piano, her Scottish Legend evokes Scotland in its wistful melody, adorned by Scotch snaps and conveying a folk-like atmosphere, but spiced up with a few late-Romantic harmonies. Contrasts between major and minor are also used to telling effect in this gently attractive piece, sympathetically arranged for the organ by Robert Gower.
