Grab a wee dram o’ Talisker and prepare yeself for a voyage across the pond as we bring you two symphonies inspired by the sights and sounds of Scotland. Amy Beach’s history-making Gaelic Symphony was the first symphony ever composed by an American woman. The landscape of Scotland inspired several works by Mendelssohn, most notably his Third Symphony, which bears the nickname, Scottish. Both pieces are inspired by the pentatonic sound of Scottish folk music.
