BMOP/sound proudly presents work of the late great Steven Stucky on our 50th release. From 1987's Concerto for Orchestra, less well-known than his Pulitzer Prize-winning Second Concerto for Orchestra, to the spare but eloquent song cycle American Muse, featuring baritone Sanford Sylvan, to the vibrant Rhapsodies, Stucky's musical voice is one to treasure.

Now BMOP/sound brings that landmark opera to disc with our release of Four Saints in Three Acts! (photo: Thomson and original cast, 1934, by Vic Shifreen)
