Discography

Like the Works List page, the following works list is based on the lists you will find in the book, Amy Beach: Passionate Victorian, and the Amy Beach Grove article, which were both written by the prominent Amy Beach biographer, Adrienne Fried Block.

All of the works by Amy Beach are separated into multiple tables.  Each of these tables includes all of the works within that respective genre.  Within each table, the works are arranged by ascending Opus number and/or year of composition/publication.  A bulleted list is included under each work with the current recording publications.  When there is more than one recording, the albums are arranged by release year.  In the event a work has never been commercially recorded, it will not be included in this list.

NOTE – The list currently includes commercial CD recordings, but soon the list will include additional available formats (LP, CD, DVD, etc).

Abbreviations – A: alto; acc.: accompaniment; arr(s).: arrangement(s); B: bass (voice); fl: flute; frag.: fragment; fs: full score; hp: harp; movt(s): movement(s); obbl: obbligato; orch: orchestra; orchd: orchestrated; org: organ; os: organ score; pf: pianoforte (piano); ps: piano score; pubd: published; rev.: revised; S: soprano; spkr: speaker; str qt: string quartet; T: tenor; transcr.: transcribed; v: voice; va: viola; vc: violoncello; vn: violin; vs: vocal score or piano-vocal scorevv: voices; ww qt: woodwind quintet.
