Notes & Reviews:

The newest release from BMOP/sound features three works by distinguished American composer Lewis Spratlan. In his expansive, multilayered Apollo and Daphne Variations, Spratlan uses the orchestra as a vehicle for metamorphosis - a modern take on Classical themes, with a Romantic heart. The other two pieces on the disc display Spratlan's breadth and creativity. Saxophonist Eliot Gattegno brings a distinctive and human voice to the deeply personal Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra, while A Summer's Day is a vividly painted tone poem that channels sublime and stormy memories. The BMOP orchestra, led by Gil Rose, showcases its trademark warmth and virtuosity.
