Ever Upwards, Ever Outwards: José Serebrier talks to Jeremy Siepmann

ROREM, N.: Violin Concerto / Flute Concerto / Pilgrims (Khaner, Quint, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Serebrier)

Chosen in 1988 as Composer of the Year by Musical America and now recognized as one of the finest song composers in America, Ned Rorem has also written a significant body of music for orchestra, including Three Symphonies (Naxos 8.559149). Written in a refined tonal idiom like so much of Rorem’s music, the 1985 Violin Concerto is notable for its elegiac lyrical invention. The recent Flute Concerto, the first in a series of Philadelphia Orchestra commissions for its principals, was described at its première as ‘not so much a concerto as a surpassingly imaginative fantasy for flute and orchestra’. It is performed on this world première recording by its dedicatee, Jeffrey Khaner.
