BMOP “Band in Boston” Rocks the House Tonight!

Here’s where I’ll be tonight, hearing a program of 20th- and 21st-century works presented by local new music powerhouse, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, or BMOP, as the cool kids say!

The Program:

  • Igor Stravinsky: Symphonies of Wind Instruments
  • Wayne Peterson: And The Winds Shall Blow, for Saxophone Quartet, Winds, and Percussion
    PRISM Quartet
  • Percy Grainger: The Power of Rome and the Christian Heart
  • Harold Meltzer: Privacy, A Concerto for Piano with Winds, Brass, and Percussion
    Ursula Oppens, piano
  • Joseph Schwantner Recoil

Ursula Oppens is a rock star in the world of contemporary classical music, not to mention a GRAMMY® nominee for Oppens Plays Carter her recording of solo piano music by Elliott Carter, classical composition’s still-spry elder statesman, at 101 years young!

I’ll report back on this concert after the fact… Though I’m not sure how soon, as my every waking moment is now being spent getting ready for GRAMMY Week!

By the way, the Miss Music Nerd Hollywood Fund has reached 43% of goal as of this writing! Can you help me make it to 100, kinda like Elliott? Thanks so much 😀
