BMOP/sound presents Paul Moravec’s contemporary update to the vaunted tradition of the oratorio. The Blizzard Voices chronicles a dramatic episode in American history: the fearsome “Schoolhouse Blizzard” that hit the Great Plains in 1888. Setting poetry by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, Moravec crafts a work of devastating power.
Local icons, homegrown talent, and champion soloists help kick off our 22nd season. Generations celebrates where American music has come from and where it is headed, with works by William Schuman, Matthew Aucoin, David Sanford, and John Harbison. Featuring soloists Conor Hanick (piano) and Matt Haimovitz (cello).
BMOP presents Wayne Peterson's Pulitzer Prize-winning orchestral work The Face of the Night, the Heart of the Dark in its first commercial recording. And the Winds Shall Blow features the inimitable saxophonists of the PRISM Quartet, and Transformations is a classic glimpse into a rigorously inventive compositional mind.
