Beloved by Spokane, conductor Morihiko Nakahara returns with a program of romantic passions. Amy Beach is the composer of the first published symphony by an American woman, weaving old-world folk songs into symphonic form. Mozart’s beautiful 1785 piano concerto is often used in films—you’ve heard it in Superman Returns, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Elvira Madigan—giving the music its unofficial nickname.
