The Boston Modern Orchestra Project presents Philip Glass's Symphony No. 2, and welcomes guest pianist Anton Batagov for the Tirol Concerto in a concert celebrating the artistry of this great modern composer. Also featuring the winner of the annual BMOP-NEC Composition Competition.
Prepare for saints! One of the great partnerships of modernist art was formed when composer Virgil Thomson and writer Gertrude Stein decided to collaborate on an opera about art, sound, and sainthood. Now BMOP/sound brings that opera to disc with our release of Four Saints in Three Acts! Available to preview and order, and from all major digital retailers.

Join us as we embark on our 21st season! From Philip Glass to Michael Colgrass, our season includes spirituals, a Schubert/Charlie Parker redux, a handful of dazzling concertos, and even an operatic dive into classic horror. Full and partial season subscriptions now available.
BMOP/sound is proud to present our second CD of local composer David Rakowski's brilliant work. Dazzling pianist Amy Briggs appears in his Piano Concerto No. 2, written for her, while another beloved local, pianist Sarah Bob, takes the lead in the kaleidoscopic mixing bowl of Stolen Moments.
