Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) and special guest artists Byron Hitchcock (violin) and BSO principal Richard Svoboda (bassoon)

The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP), the nation’s leading orchestra dedicated exclusively to performing, commissioning, and recording new music of the 21st century, turns its focus to its home town by honoring some of the city’s top composers and performers by hosting the 10th annual Boston Connection concert Friday, January 25th @ 8:00pm at Jordan Hall (30 Gainsborough Street). As New England Conservatory’s (NEC) affiliate orchestra for new music, BMOP celebrates music by NEC composers past and present, and an NEC soloist chosen by competition. Joined by special guest artists Byron Hitchcock (violin) and BSO principal Richard Svoboda (bassoon), BMOP will perform a range of musical styles: NEC faculty/alumnus Michael Gandolfi Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra (2007); the world premiere of former NEC faculty member Ezra Sims’ Concert Piece (2005); former Harvard faculty member Leon Kirchner Toccata (1962); and the world premiere of NEC student composer Osnat Netzer’s Common Ground (2007), whose score was selected from the 2007 BMOP/NEC competition contest.

BMOP/NEC’s evolving relationship began in 1997 out of a mutual desire to give Boston-based composers and performers a venue for presenting new music. The annual Boston Connection concert celebrates this affiliation with music by NEC composers past and present, and an NEC soloist chosen by competition. According to the Boston Globe, the styles of this concert run the gamut. The varying works are “… united by a sense of composers sifting through centuries of music history in search of gems to be repolished, reset, or altogether reimagined from a contemporary perspective.”
