Eugène Ysaÿe Amitie, Poem for Two Violins and Orchestra, Op. 26 with violinists Marc Ramirez & Olivia Hajioff
Amy Beach Symphony No. 2, op. 32, E minor (Gaelic)
The Philharmonic is delighted to partner again with the acclaimed Marcolivia Duo to present virtuoso violinist Ysaÿe’s rarely performed Amitie (Friendship), a gorgeous reverie and a rhapsodic, evocative symphonic poem dedicated to a long-time friend of Ysaÿe’s. Beach’s Gaelic Symphony, based in part on four Irish folksongs, established her as the prominent female composer of the early 20th century. Full of romantic harmonies, the work is irresistibly charming, as it includes love songs, fiddle tunes, dance rhythms, and soaring melodies.
Programs and performers subject to change without notice.
Maestro James' Season Overview Podcast
Don’t miss our season of Spotlight on Women Composers, our most adventurous season ever! According to a Baltimore Symphony Orchestra survey of the 22 largest American orchestras, women composers accounted for only 1.8 percent of the total works performed. This season the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic will help redress that balance and “even the score.” As you can see from our 2018-19 program, 14 of the 16 works WMP performs are by women composers.
