BMOP Spotlights Music by Great Hungarian Composers

Jordan Hall, Boston
30 Gainsborough Street
United States

Boston Modern Orchestra Project

The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP), the nation’s premier orchestra dedicated exclusively to commissioning, performing, and recording new orchestral music, presents an evening dedicated to four composers of Hungarian descent – Bálint Karosi (b.1979), Kati Agócs (b.1975), György Ligeti (1923-2006) and Béla Bartók (1881-1945). Complemented by the innovative all-female vocal group Lorelei Ensemble, BMOP performs the world premieres of Karosi’s Existentia—in memory of Sándor Weöres (commissioned by BMOP) and Agócs’s The Debrecen Passion, as well as Ligeti’s Violin Concerto (1990) featuring violinist Gabriela Diaz, and Bartók’s Three Village Scenes (1926).
