JOSE SEREBRIER

GRAMMY® award-winning conductor and composer José Serebrier has received 39 GRAMMY® nominations in recent years, and has conducted at the GRAMMY® Awards in Los Angeles, televised live to 176 countries. He is one of today’s most frequently recorded conductors, with over 300 releases. Highly praised by Leopold Stokowski as “the greatest master of orchestral balance”, he served as the latter’s associate conductor at New York’s Carnegie Hall for five years, before accepting an invitation from George Szell to become composer-in-residence of the Cleveland Orchestra. Szell discovered Serebrier when he won the Ford Foundation American Conductors Competition (together with James Levine). Serebrier was music director of America’s oldest music festival, in Worcester, Massachusetts, until he organized Festival Miami, and served as its artistic director for many years. In that capacity, he commissioned many composers, including Elliot Carter’s String Quartet No 4, and conducted many American and world premières. He has made international tours with the Russian National Orchestra, Juilliard Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony, Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Toulouse Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra of the Americas, National Youth Orchestra of Spain and many others. His first recording, Charles Ives’s Fourth Symphony with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, won a GRAMMY® nomination. His recording of the Mendelssohn symphonies won the UK Music Retailers Association Award for Best Orchestral Recording, and his series of Shostakovich’s Film Suites won the Deutsche Schallplatten Award for Best Orchestral Recording. Soundstage magazine selected Serebrier’s recording of Scheherazade with the LPO as the Best Audiophile Recording. He has recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Bournemouth Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Weimar, Bayerischer Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra, SWR Symphony Baden Baden/Freiburg, Oslo Philharmonic, Bamberg Symphony, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, Barcelona Symphony, Czech State Philharmonic Brno, Sydney and Melbourne Symphonies and many others. As a composer, Serebrier has won most important awards in the United States, including two Guggenheims (as the youngest in that Foundation’s history, at the age of nineteen), Rockefeller Foundation grants, commissions from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Harvard Musical Association, the BMI Award, Koussevitzky Foundation Award, among others. Born in Uruguay of Russian and Polish parents, he has composed more than a hundred works. His First Symphony had its première under Leopold Stokowski when Serebrier was 17. His music has been recorded by conductors such as John Eliot Gardiner. His Third Symphony, ‘Symphonie Mystique’ (Naxos 8.559183), received a GRAMMY® nomination for Best New Composition of 2004. His Carmen Symphony CD, with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, won the Latin GRAMMY® for Best Classical Album. The French music critic Michel Fauré has written a new biography of José Serebrier, and his first recording with the New York Philharmonic was recently released to great international acclaim. His new Flute Concerto with Tango, premièred and recorded by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, receives its American première in October 2012 at Carnegie Hall in New York, with the American Composers Orchestra conducted by José Serebrier.
