Notes & Reviews:

Gil Rose and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project devote BMOP/sound's latest release to the lush, colorful, exquisitely crafted orchestral works of composer Elena Ruehr. At the album's heart is a three-part musical depiction of a triptych of celebrated Georgia O'Keeffe paintings: "Sky Above Clouds," "Ladder to the Moon," and "Summer Days." The remaining works further display Ruehr's vivid imagination and ear for orchestration, as well as BMOP's noted sensitivity, ensemble, and technical skill in bringing new works to life. Cellist Jennifer Kloetzel joins the orchestra for the evocative cello concerto "Cloud Atlas."
