José Serebrier New CD Launch, Signing & Panel Discussion

September 25, 2010

Naxos of America invites you to join
Ned Rorem, Rachel Barton Pine and Carole Farley
for a special CD signing and panel discussion at
Lincoln Triangle, 1972 Broadway
New York, NY 212-595-6859
Tuesday, October 19th, 7:30 pm

From the orchestral transcriptions of Leopold Stokowski, to the Symphonies and Concertos of Ned Rorem, to his transcendental live performance of Rachmaninoff’s The Bells on Warner Classics, José Serebrier’s work shows an astonishing range of musical interest and accomplishment. But even as he champions the work of others, his own work as a composer is sometimes overlooked. The just released recording of his Symphony No. 1, Violin Concerto, and Double Bass Concerto, with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra shows that this side of his work deserves equal attention.

At this event, José and his guests discuss their shared musical accomplishments; from the Naxos recordings of the orchestral music of Ned Rorem with José Serebrier conducting, to the exquisite songs of Ned Rorem as recorded by Carole Farley, to recordings of the orchestral transcriptions of Maestro Serebrier’s mentor, Leopold Stokowski. As a special highlight violinist Rachel Barton Pine will give the first US performance of José Serebrier’s Aires de Tango, a piece she commissioned from him for inclusion on her next CD on the Cedille label, Capricho Latino.
