AMY BEACH: Symphony in E-minor “Gaelic”
PAUL MORAVEC: Sanctuary Road

Contemporary with Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony, Amy Beach’s American masterwork of the late 19th century is too rarely performed. So Oakland Symphony patrons overwhelmingly voted to give Mrs. Beach’s Gaelic Symphony a hearing. Also—receiving its West Coast premiere—is Sanctuary Road, an epic, moving oratorio by Paul Moravec and Mark Campbell, based on the writings of William Still, conductor for the Underground Railroad.
