Notes & Reviews:

BMOP/sound is proud to add to its catalog a recording of five orchestral works by Cambodian-American composer Chinary Ung. The disc spans Ung's impressive career, from Anicca, written in 1970 at the Tanglewood Music Center, to 2013's Singing Inside Aura, featuring the composer's wife, violist Susan Ung, a specialist in the unique technique of vocalizing and playing simultaneously. Two works represent Ung's "spirals" series: Antiphonal Spirals and Grand Spiral: Desert Flowers Bloom, both scored for symphony orchestra supplemented with traditional Asian instruments. The succinct Water Rings Overture opens the disc. Ung's singular vision unites Western concert music with the musical traditions of his homeland, opening new horizons for both and creating an extraordinary, multi-textured sound world. Gil Rose and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project maintain their trademark skill and insight in realizing the music of a wide spectrum of contemporary composers.
