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

WAGNER: Symphonic Syntheses by Stokowski

When Leopold Stokowski began his conducting career, the music of Wagner featured in his very first concert and was to remain close to his heart for the rest of his life. In those early days, particularly through gramophone records, he introduced Wagner to a wide public with extended orchestral excerpts woven together as richly conceived tone poems and given the title “Symphonic Syntheses”. In these performances by José Serebrier and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, these tone poems have a unique sumptuousness of sound and for those who love this evocative music gloriously played, there is much here that will ravish the ear. – The Leopold Stokowski Society
