WILLIAM BOLCOM, CAROLE FARLEY, AND JOSÉ SEREBRIER 
DISCUSSION AND CD SIGNING AT BARNES AND NOBLE
LINCOLN CENTER (1972 BROADWAY), NEW YORK CITY

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th at 7:00 pm

William Bolcom and Carole Farley, joined by José Serebrier, will appear at the Lincoln Center Barnes and Noble in New York City on September 19th at 7:00 pm to discuss and sign their recent Naxos CDs.

In June, Naxos released songs by Pulitzer Prize-winning Bolcom with Metropolitan Opera star Farley that Alan Rich of L.A. Weekly has called “a glorious collection of solo songs.”  The CD was a Gramophone Editor’s Choice in July.

Bolcom’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience, released in October 2004, was listed as among the best classical recordings of 2004 by writers at The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and Boston Globe.

The orchestral transcriptions of Mussorgsky and Tchaikovsky by Leopold Stokowski with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Stokowski’s one-time protégé José Serebrier, also released in June, was praised by Daniel Felsenfeld of Time Out New York as “performances that finally do justice to Stoki’s transcriptions . . . the standard by which future recordings are judged,” while Luis Felipe Marsans has proclaimed “without doubt, this CD is one of the best of the decade.”  On September 20th, Naxos will release this sparkling recording in both SACD and DVD-A surround-sound formats.
