Enjoy the many sides of composer of Canadian-American composer Michael Colgrass on this latest release from BMOP/sound. Colgrass gives his take on a (imagined) theme from Mozart on Letter from Mozart. Side by Side features keyboard soloist Joanne Kong performing a one-of-a-kind concerto: harpsichord and piano played simultaneously. The disc closes with The Schubert Birds, a mash-up of a theme by Franz Schubert in a style inspired by jazz saxophonist Charlie "Bird" Parker.
Avant-garde classical meets jazz and rock on David Sanford: Black Noise, the latest release from BMOP/sound. The eponymous composition, commissioned by BMOP and premiered in March 2017, takes inspiration from a pastiche of contemporary composers and film. Prayer: in Memoriam Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. honors the life of the civil rights leader and his impact on the composer and the composer's hometown, Pittsburgh. Scherzo Grosso features cello soloist Matt Haimovitz in an orchestral reimagining of the original big band work.
It's new music for a new year, as we are releasing the world premiere recording of The Witch of Endor by William Schuman. This latest release on BMOP/sound includes three of Schuman's collaborations with dancer and choreographer Martha Graham, with Judith, Choreographic Poem and Night Journey rounding out the disc. Start your new year right with this not-to-be-missed disc!
