Album information

Conducting legend José Serebrier, together with the RSNO, performs a programme of works by the hugely influential American composer Samuel Adler, including the world premiere of his Sixth Symphony.

For those unfamiliar with Adler’s catalogue, this album is a great entrance point; for those who are, it adds a valuable first hearing of his Symphony No. 6 which is dynamic and full of energy.

These works are benchmarks of contemporary American composition: monumental in scale and embracing a wide expressive spectrum with ease and visceral power, Adler merges twenty-first century ebullience with an almost classical economy and balance.

In his Concerto For Soloist And Orchestra, Adler celebrates all aspects of the instrument, creating a wide emotional and expressive palette for young cellist Maximilian Hornung, who excels as the soloist.

Drifting On Wind And Currents, a memorial tone-poem inspired by the poetry of Louise Glück, rounds off this album of classical music which, while challenging, is rewarding at every turn.
