BMOP/sound's latest release guest-stars violinist Gabriela Diaz in the Suite for Violin with American Gamelan, the Providence Singers in La Koro Sutro, and BMOP's own unique American Gamelan!

Lee Hyla, 1952-2014 (Consulting with Lee on the world premiere of his Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, January 2002.)

BMOP received universal acclaim for our performance of Irving Fine's landmark Symphony (1962). Coming soon to disc!

Spratlan: mythology, summer vignettes, struggle expressed via saxophones. Davis: political commentary, groove, Balinese-influenced polyrhythms, pianistic virtuosity. Take your pick!

Gil Rose, conductor

In 1996, Gil Rose set out to restore a widening disconnect between contemporary audiences and contemporary music. Today BMOP remains dedicated to its mission and is the leading orchestra for commissioning, performing, and recording modern orchestral music.


“We didn’t know how much we needed BMOP until they appeared. Now we do. It is important for all of us who care about music to turn up the heat, and ensure its future.”
— John Harbison
