Notes & Reviews:

Maestro José Serebrier's acclaimed Glazunov symphony & concerto cycle is now available as an 8CD capbox. The completion of this series was a personal triumph for Serebrier, who's passion for these works are heard throughout every performance.

Penguin Guide, Key Recordings
Serebrier gets very characterful and brilliant performances from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra... the refinement and power of the performance are superbly caught.

Daily Telegraph - Geoffrey Norris
This set is a godsend. Glazunov's Violin Concerto maintains its hold on the repertoire, but how many times do we hear the two piano concertos or the one for saxophone, let alone the Concerto Ballata for cello or the miniatures he wrote for violin, cello and horn? José Serebrier's recordings of Glazunov's eight completed symphonies, plus the torso of a projected ninth, have established a valuable core of music in the catalogue, but this two-disc album of the concertos with the Russian National Orchestra is far more than merely an appendage.

Glazunov had an instinct for the dynamics of concerto writing, his ear for orchestral color combining with his mellow lyricism and secure architectural sense to create a frisson that some of the symphonies might lack. The Violin Concerto, winsomely played by Rachel Barton Pine, was the first to be composed in 1904; the pair of piano concertos, with Alexander Romanovsky here a soloist of soul and spirit, followed over the next couple of decades. True, Glazunov's style did not change markedly with the years - not even for the Saxophone Concerto of 1934 - but he knew precisely how to harness instruments' individual expressive qualities.
