I confess that I'm not too familiar with the works of Amy Beach, but she's apparently among the first female American composers who wrote large-scale art music. I was struck by the lush, beautiful orchestration and harmony in the beginning of this movement (the rest of the movement is a pretty standard set of variations), and I wanted to share it. What do you think of it?
Hello all, This is a small piece in Irish Gaelic from the 18th century (hence the Baroque tag) - the poem is a dialogue between the poet (tenor) and a priest (bass) on the subject of death and godly punishment (or forgiveness) after death. It's scored for one flute, one piano, two soloists and a cello as well as a choir with 2-3 singers per voice. Any advice is welcome, particularly on technicalities on the Cello.
