This performance will be live-broadcast from WBGH:
The Boston Modern Orchestra Project is widely recognized as the leading orchestra in the United States dedicated exclusively to performing 20th- and 21st-century music. Its signature record label, BMOP/sound, is the nation's foremost label launched by an orchestra and solely devoted to new music recordings.
BMOP initially planned to come to Amherst College to celebrate professor emeritus Lew Spratlan’s 80th birthday, surrounded by music by composers who had worked with Lew at Amherst. Delayed by the pandemic, we are delighted to bring this exciting program to fruition a year later. Other works will include orchestral music by Martin Brody, Eric Sawyer, and Scott Wheeler.
"Lew Spratlan and Friends"
Scott Wheeler Pocket Concerto 15"
Martin Brody Prince of Cats World Premiere 8"
Martin Brody The Trick of Singularity World Premiere 8"
