On August 30, Naxos releases a new recording devoted to works by the Grammy® award-winning conductor and composer, José Serebrier. Performed by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Chorus led by the composer, the recording features the world premiere recording of the Double Bass Concerto, “Nueve,” with legendary bassist Gary Karr, for whom the work was originally written, and the great British actor Simon Callow, who narrates a Shelley poem which forms the basis of the work. The Double Bass Concerto was written while Serebrier was the composer-in-residence of the Cleveland Orchestra, at the invitation of George Szell.


Also featured on this CD is the first studio recording of Serebrier’s Symphony No. 1 (1956), which was written when the composer was 17 and a student at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. The composer provided the following note: “Leopold Stokowski called from Houston to announce that the long-awaited world premiere of Charles Ives' 4th Symphony would be replaced by the world premiere of my [José Serebrier's] 1st Symphony, written the year before. All the press had gathered in Houston to witness the much heralded Ives premiere, but Stokowski announced that the work was so difficult they could never get past the first few bars, and instead he offered to premiere this new symphony by a young unknown composer.” As a result, Serebrier continues, “I was interviewed at length [by] many publications and news services, including Time, Newsweek, AP, etc. Unfortunately, despite the tremendous success of the performance, the premiere coincided with the Soviet Union's launching of the Sputnik, which for weeks put a temporary end to any arts coverage.” Stokowski went on to perform other Serebrier works in New York at Carnegie Hall, including the Elegy for Strings (written at age 14) and "Poema Elegíaco", with which Stokowski opened the season of his American Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall.


Other works on the recording include the Violin Concerto, “Winter” (1991), featuring violinist Philippe Quint; two tangos: Tango en Azul (Tango in Blue) and Casi un Tango (Almost a Tango) and, finally, the world premiere recording of They Rode Into The Sunset – Music for an Imaginary Film (2009), a piece which was originally intended for the ending scene of a Bollywood movie, but a long strike by the Mumbai film industry got in the way and, so far, the movie has been postponed.
