Conducting legend Josť 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 Adlerís 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 Cello 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 Winds and Currents, a memorial tone-poem inspired by the poetry of Louise GlŁck, rounds off this album of classical music which, while challenging, is rewarding at every turn.


Donít play this if you have a hangover. The American composer Samuel Adlerís sixth symphony is so loud, frantic and brilliantly exciting it will blow you across the room.  Stephen Pritchard
