Elliott Schwartz: Chamber Concertos I-VI

BMOP/sound's release, Chamber Concertos I-VI, is a comprehensive recording featuring the six chamber concertos of Elliott Schwartz. Spanning more than thirty years of his compositional career, these works represent a fusion of the solo concerto and the concerto grosso. Moreover, they reflect the composer's fascination with neo-Baroque models in which the virtuoso role is moderated to allow for complex textural possibilities.

BMOP/sound's latest release, John Cage: Sixteen Dances, highlights one of the most significant and influential American composers of the 20th century. A long-time collaborator with dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham, John Cage wrote a number of works which reflected their radical ideas regarding the relationship between dance and music. Sixteen Dances is one such work, developed through the use of chance operations, a compositional process involving methods such as coin tossing and the I Ching or Book of Changes.

John Harbison: Full Moon in March

BMOP/sound's release features John Harbison's Full Moon in March, an emblematic ritual-opera, the libretto of which is adapted from the poem, A Full Moon in March, by W.B. Yeats. Sinister and moody in its musical palette, Gil Rose skillfully leads BMOP with soloists Lorraine DiSimone (mezzo-soprano), James Maddalena (baritone), Anne Harley (soprano), and Frank Kelley (tenor), in a tour de force performance of a great 20th century literary work.

David Rakowski: Winged Contraption

BMOP/sound's latest release, David Rakowski: Winged Contraption, is a compilation of three profound compositions by one of this generation's most visible American composers. Winged Contraption is Rakowski's playful and ebullient tribute to composer and friend Martin Boykan, and Persistent Memory provides a counterbalance with its reflective and melancholic tenor. The Piano Concerto, which draws upon the composer's own études, ushers forth teasing and surrealistic elements with the appearance of toy piano in each movement.

Charles Fussell: Wilde

Charles Fussell's High Bridge, Portrait of Hart Crane and Wilde are the result of considering the lives of Hart Crane and Oscar Wilde as possible operatic subjects. Filled with complex and dramatic emotional references, both works are musical exposés of the instability and disquiet that plagued these two celebrated literary figures. High Bridge portrays Crane's erratic behavior in an orchestral prelude, whereas Wilde is a more extended operatic reflection on the writer's tragic life.

Derek Bermel: Voices

Voices is a compilation of three orchestral works and one solo piece by Derek Bermel. Seductively called his "spectral potion," Elixir reflects Bermel's influences as varied as John Lennon, Charles Ives, and the Isley Brothers. Thracian Echoes embraces the soulful harmonies of traditional Bulgarian melodies whereas Dust Dances is a translation of an African gyil music session into orchestral idioms. In Voices, Bermel himself performs the brilliantly written concerto for clarinet with impressive virtuosity.
