Smetana’s symphonic poem The Moldau sets the tone for this evening of musical trendsetters. The Anchorage Symphony is honored to welcome back Rachel Barton Pine a violinist heralded as the most charismatic, virtuosic, and compelling American violinist of her generation. We close the concert featuring another remarkable American musician - Amy Beach - performing the ASO premiere of her Gaelic Symphony - the first symphony, or any type of symphonic work, ever composed by an American woman and premiered by the Boston Symphony in 1896.
