American Composers Orchestra to Perform Piece from GRAMMY-Nominated Naxos Recording in New York and Philadelphia

On November 11th, the American Composers Orchestra will perform the world premiere live performance of José Serebrier’s Symphony No. 3 Symphonie Mystique--a work that has been released already on a CD of music by Serebrier from Naxos--at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall. The performance will be repeated on November 13th at the Zellerbach Theater at the Annenberg Center for the Arts in Philadelphia.

Recorded in 2003, the GRAMMY-nominated Naxos disc of Symphony No. 3 with the Toulouse Chamber Orchestra (8.559183) also includes Serebrier’s Passacaglia and Perpetuum Mobile, Variations on a Theme from Childhood, Elegy for Strings, Momento psicologico, Fantasia, Dorothy and Carmine!, and George and Muriel.

Symphony No. 3 Symphonie Mystique for chamber orchestra is marked by a Slavic-sounding melody that reappears throughout the piece in several disguises, more as a memory of things past than as a leitmotiv. The work includes a rhapsodic fantasy in the second and third movements interrupted by a sad, cryptic obsessively returning waltz. Symphonie Mystique then returns to its original haunting undercurrent, with the texture of the entire work enhanced by an off-stage soprano voice; on both the Naxos recording and in the upcoming performances, this vocal part will be performed by Carole Farley.

As a conductor, Serebrier has recorded extensively for Naxos, including his recent disc of Leopold Stokowski transcriptions. His recording of Ned Rorem’s Symphonies Nos. 1-3 (8.559149) was nominated for three GRAMMY Awards in 2004 and his CD of William Schuman’s Violin Concerto with Philip Quint (8.559083) was nominated for two GRAMMY Awards.
