Boston Modern Orchestra Project, which is dedicated to performing contemporary symphonic repertoire, has launched BMOP Radio, a commercial-free, 24/7 online radio station broadcasting the BMOP/sound label’s catalogue of more than 75 recordings. “BMOP Radio seeks to expand the new music audience, increase awareness of BMOP/sound’s recordings, and make 20th and 21st century compositions easily accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of economic means or geographical proximity to a concert hall,” says Gil Rose, founder and director of BMOP, BMOP/sound, and BMOP Radio. “With the advent of BMOP Radio, we are eliminating the barriers to exploring contemporary orchestra repertoire.” Recordings include new and recent works by such composers as Andrew Norman, Chen Yi, Steven Mackey, and David Sanford, as well as rarely heard scores by 20th-century luminaries including Virgil Thomson, Leon Kirchner, and William Schuman. BMOP Radio is available online at BMOP.org/radio, Live365.com, and via mobile at the Live365 app, and the iTunes or Android app store.
Boston Modern Orchestra Project Radio is supported by a generous grant from the American Orchestras’ Futures Fund, a program of the League of American Orchestras made possible by funding from the Ann & Gordon Getty Foundation.
