BIZET / SEREBRIER: Carmen Symphony and other works

Having orchestrated Gershwin's piano works (at the request of Gershwin's family), numerous Grieg songs, and more recently a symphonic synthesis of Janáček's The Makropulos Case, José Serebrier compiled a sequence of orchestral interludes from Bizet's Carmen to try to extend its magic to the concert hall. Carmen Symphony, unlike the well-known Carmen Suites, follows the thread of the opera. Serebrier has always been fascinated by the music of the Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas, and Mexican Dance is his homage to this original composer. This, and Serebrier's own Night Cry are world première recordings. The United States Marine Band, the oldest professional musical institution in the United States, regularly invites prominent conductors. This is a recording of a concert performance in 2007.
