BMOP kicks off its AS TOLD BY series on June 17 with Anthony Davis's X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X. Tickets are available now.
From composer Roger Reynolds, who pioneered sound spatialization, intermedia, and algorithmic concepts, Roger Reynolds: Violin Works comprises three violin concertos written over a 15-year span. Featuring longtime BMOP member Gabriela Díaz as soloist, this disc explores what Reynolds calls the violin's "multifaceted voice."
Gail Kubik's Pulitzer Prize-winning Symphony Concertante anchors the latest release on BMOP/sound featuring BMOP regular Terry Everson as trumpet soloist, BMOP favorite Vivian Choi as piano soloist, and introducing viola soloist Jing Peng. Percussionist Robert Schulz and narrator Frank Kelley shine in the concert version of the score to the Oscar-winning cartoon Gerald McBoing Boing, written by Dr. Seuss, and two Divertimenti inspired by Kubik's work in film music round out Gail Kubik: Symphony Concertante.
