The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP), the nation’s premier orchestra dedicated exclusively to commissioning, performing, and recording new orchestral music, bridges the electro-acoustic divide in its season-opening concert. Spotlighting composers known for their virtuosic writing and electronic transformation of acoustic instruments, BMOP presents the world premiere of Anthony Paul De Ritis’s Riflessioni, featuring bassoonist Patrick De Ritis, and the Boston premieres of Ronald Bruce Smith’s Constellation and David Felder’s Les Quatre Temps Cardinaux, featuring soprano Laura Aikin and bass Ethan Herschenfeld.
