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.
BMOP/sound honors the creative spirit of David Stock (1939-2015) with three intriguing, quirky, charming musical collaborations. Featuring the stylings of Andrés Cárdenes, violin, Alex Klein, oboes, and Lisa Pegher, percussion.
Featuring the crystalline voices of celebrated vocalists and Boston's own Lorelei Ensemble, Kati Agócs draws on a multicultural spiritual heritage in five works that weave together tradition, poetry, and devotion in unique and often ravishingly beautiful musical tapestries.
Orchestral composer, DJ, curator...Mason Bates has no need of a day/night split personality: he combines traditional virtuosity and symphonic color with techno beats, electronica, and improvisation in his orchestral works. Mothership features five compositions, ranging in inspiration from oceanic depths to Pima Indian chant to a hybrid technological art of the future. Not to be missed!
Chinary Ung: Singing Inside Aura features singing violist Susan Ung in the title track, as well as two of the composer's fascinating "spiral" works, and more. A deeply studied and intuitively felt merging of Cambodian and Western musical traditions.
Foss's Symphony in G, "Symphony of Chorales," "Symphony of Sorrows," and "Window to the Past" in SACD quality. A landmark release!
Premiere recordings of Blue Earth, Wedge, and Viola Concerto starring Kate Vincent, viola.
