'This disc, originally released by Reference Recordings but now appearing on Naxos, remains a lot of fun, even if the music is somewhat uneven in quality. The main offering, José Serebrier's Partita (subtitled Symphony No. 2), dates from around 1960. It's marvelous: brilliantly scored, Latin-influenced in a completely natural, kitsch-free way, and featuring a second-movement funeral march that'll blow your speakers apart if you're not careful. You'll love it. The Fantasia for strings is an orchestral arrangement of a string quartet, and it's similarly full of bouncing rhythms and expressive tunes. I found less to hold my attention in the Sonata for solo violin simply because the medium seems somewhat out of place in an orchestral collection such as this one, but I have no doubt that the work will be of interest to violinists looking for something to do by themselves aside from Bach and Bartók. As for Winterreise, this late work is a sort of musical collage, paying homage to Haydn's "Winter" from The Seasons, as well as to music from Glazunov's ballet of the same title. It's fluff, but highly entertaining fluff. As might be expected, the composer leads the London Philharmonic in smashing performances of the three orchestral works; Gonzalo Acosta masters the difficulties of the solo violin sonata with aplomb, and the recording is the last word in high fidelity.'


“José Serebrier’s conducting has
been so triumphant that we tend to
forget he is an equally distinguished
composer” (The Times). Symphony
No. 2, ‘Partita’, written at the age of
19 and premièred by the National
Symphony Orchestra in Washington
with the composer in his U.S.
conducting début, “is a sort of
musical Armageddon you’re not
likely to forget” (CDNow), “music of
our time that demands to be heard”
(The Times). The lyrical Fantasia
was premièred in Boston at the
Harvard Musical Association, which
commissioned it. The Solo Violin
Sonata is Serebrier’s Opus 1, written
when he was 9 years old. Winterreise,
one of the composer’s most recent
works, “… is a passionate orchestral
showpiece. Ambitiously scored, it is
spectacularly impressive” (The
Gramophone). Serebrier’s acclaimed
Symphony No. 3, “Symphonie
Mystique”, the recipient of several
Grammy nominations, is featured
on Naxos 8.559183.
