José Serebrier


Conducting legend José Serebrier, together with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, performs the premiere recording of four works by contemporary American composer, Robert Beaser.

José Serebrier is one of the most recorded classical artists in history; he has received eight Grammy wins and forty-five Grammy Award nominations including a Latin Grammy nomination for his recording of Adler’s Sixth Symphony with the RSNO.

Two of the works, Notes on a Southern Sky and the Guitar Concerto, were written for guitar virtuoso Eliot Fisk, a noted pupil of Andrés Segovia, who performed the concerto alongside José Serebrier in 2015 and returns for this recording. Fisk describes them as ‘epic works of historical importance in the history of the guitar.’

Premiered by Fisk in New York in 2009, the Guitar Concerto is truly symphonic in scale with virtuoso passages that only a master could write; the variety of styles perfectly exploits Fisk’s dazzling agility.

Evening Prayer is an orchestral tone poem demonstrating the melodic and harmonic beauty which characterises Beaser’s style

Ground 0 is Beaser’s own orchestration of an earlier work written within a month of the events of September 11; its power to reflect the enormous sadness of this tragedy is unspeakably moving.

Guitarist Eliot Fisk is known worldwide as a charismatic performer famed for his adventurous and virtuosic repertoire.

‘José Serebrier is a top rate conductor/composer with a sense of choice and judgement second to none. He gets the very best from a youthful RSNO.’ - MusicWeb International
