The Boston Modern Orchestra Project will continue its exploration of contemporary American music this week as Gil Rose leads a program dedicated to the works of John Corigliano.

Saturday evening’s concert will focus upon the composer’s Symphony No. 2. Based upon a string quartet Corigliano penned n 1996  for the Cleveland Quartet’s farewell tour, this version for string orchestra conveys a profound sense of anger and loss. Rose will also lead BMOP in Corigliano’s Troubadours, a twenty-minute set of variations for guitar and orchestra that will feature Eliot Fisk as soloist.

Filling out the program will be the world premiere of Diana Voyer’s The Infinite Forest, winner of the 2019 BMOP-NEC Composition Competition.

The performance will take place 8 p.m. Saturday at Jordan Hall.
