BIZET / SEREBRIER: Carmen Symphony and other works

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Recorded in 2007, this live performance of \The President's Own" Marine Band is led by GRAMMY-winning conductor-composer Jose Serebrier, who recently was nominated (along with and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra) for a Best Orchestral Performance nomination for his Naxos recording of Shostakovich's The Golden Age.Having orchestrated Gershwin's piano works (at the request of the composer's family), numerous Grieg songs, and, more recently, a symphonic synthesis of Janacek's The Makropulos Case, Serebrier compiled a sequence of orchestral interludes from Bizet's Carmen to extend its magic to the concert hall. Carmen Symphony - unlike the well-known Carmen Suites - follows the thread of the opera. Jos?® Serebrier has always been fascinated by the music of Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas, and this Mexican Dance is his homage to this imaginative composer. Mexican Dance and Serebrier's own Night Cry are world-premiere recordings. Alberto Ginastera's Estancia Suite, Op. 8a and a rousing encore performance of John Philip Sousa's The Stars and Stripes Forever round out this disc. The United States Marine Band was established by an Act of Congress in 1798 and is America's oldest professional musical organization. Members of "The President's Own" are active duty members of the United States Marine Corps who enlist under a contract of service with the Marine Band only."
