Notes & Reviews:

Latin GRAMMY-winner conductor and composer José Serebrier is one of most recorded classical artists in history. He has received thirty-seven GRAMMY nominations in recent years. When Serebrier was 21 years old, Leopold Stokowski hailed him as "the greatest master of orchestral balance". After five years as Stokowski's Associate Conductor at New York's Carnegie Hall, Serebrier accepted an invitation from George Szell to become the Composer in Residence of the Cleveland Orchestra for Szell's last two seasons. Szell discovered Serebrier when he won the Ford Foundation American Conductors Competition (together with James Levine). Serebrier was music director of America's oldest music festival, in Worcester, Massachusetts, until he organized Festival Miami, and served as its artistic director for many years. In that capacity, Serebrier commissioned many composers, including Elliot Carter's String Quartet No. 4, and conducted many American and world premieres. Serebrier's latest release on the Warner Classics label, in which he leads the Bournemouth Symphony, is the first of a series of recordings of the music of Antonin Dvorak. This first recording features Dvorak's beloved Symphony No. 9 "From the New World."

Classic FM Magazine
However often the Bournemouth Symphony, like every other orchestra, must have played the 'New World', there's no sense of routine in their response here: in the slow movement especially, their classy woodwind section delivers some beautifully poised moments. Serebrier's conducting, however, while free from point-making for point-making's sake, is on the earthbound side.

Gramophone Magazine
The high point of the performance is the finale, which Serebrier gauges virtually to perfection, tracing every episode with the utmost care and yet always relating it to a wider musical context.
