The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP), the nation’s premier orchestra dedicated exclusively to commissioning, performing, and recording new orchestral music, concludes its 26th season with a daring program premiering “Hawking Radiation” by contemporary female composer Yu-Hui Chang, as well as orchestral works by three composers intertwined by Boston universities—Harvard University classmates Harold Shapero and Leonard Bernstein, and Brandeis University alumnus Henri Lazarof (under the tutelage of Shapero)—all led by GRAMMY Award-winning conductor and artistic director of BMOP Gil Rose.

Known for communicating a timeless aesthetic and philosophical view of humanity through her music, Taiwan-born composer Yu-Hui Chang showcases her diverse harmonic color, inventive timbre and ingenious effects in her latest work. Commissioned by BMOP, this world premiere musically interprets the phenomenon dubbed “Hawking Radiation.” Named after physicist Stephen Hawking, who derived the theorem in 1971, it remains one of the most fundamental revelations about black holes.
