Alexander Glazunov’s career as a major Russian composer straddled the Imperial and Soviet eras. “No one has ever conducted Glazunov’s music with more color and verve,” was the The New Yorker’s verdict on José Serebrier and this collection of his nine symphonies, five concertos and other orchestral works. Serebrier describes it as “a wealth of wonderful late-Romantic music,” speaking of “deep emotions that are contained and controlled, sophisticated and subtle,” and of “a perfect compositional technique… obvious in every bar of music.”
