Amy Beach was not the first American woman who composed or the first American woman who earned money with her compositions; but she created a stir in the music world by forging ahead into genres in which previously only men had distinguished themselves. It was above all the piano that was Beach’s lifelong companion. She honored her instrument with solo compositions in a total of twenty-six opus numbers over her entire compositional career from the 1880s to the 1930s. Even though her music for piano four hands or for two pianos is limited to a few compositions, they just as positively attest to their author’s talent.
