Celebrations for José Serebrier

We recently came across a fantastic video of violinist Rachel Barton Pine performing a fantastic new work from composer José Serebrier. But you might know José Serebrier better as a conductor! José Serebrier has conducted multiple RR recordings, so we just had to share this video of one of his compositions!
You can experience some of his great conducting work with both the London Philharmonic, and the Czech State Philharmonic, Brno on the following albums:

RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Scheherazade and Russian Easter Overture
A protege of Dorati and Stokowski, Serebrier is famous for his mastery of the colorful, virtuoso scores of the Russian Romantics. This is his first recording of the ultimate orchestral showpiece, Scheherazade. "...much of the playing here is possessed. The performances flow with life and dramatic poetry. The big moments are spectacularly caught." --Rob Barnett, Classical Music on the Web

Czech State Philharmonic, Brno
Janácek's home-town orchestra gives brilliant, authentic performances of Janácek's best-known orchestral works, including the Sinfonietta. Also, the world premiere of a new suite from his opera The Makropulos Case, prepared by Maestro Serebrier especially for this recording!

Czech State Philharmonic, Brno
These celebrated HDCD recordings were greeted with critical raves when first released. American Romantic George Chadwick wrote music full of orchestral color and wide dynamic range. The Symphonic Sketches have long been an audiophile favorite, but have been sorely in need of a new, top-quality recording. Aphrodite, Tam O‘Shanter, Melpomene and the other works have equally appealing qualities.

Here is Rachel Barton Pine performing his piece "Aires de Tango":
