Jose Serebrier Conducts Samuel Adler
Linn Records (CKD 545); June 10, 2016
Performer(s): Maximilian Hornung, cello; Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Jose Serebrier, conductor
Work(s): Concerto for Cello and Orchestra
Symphony No. 6
These works are benchmarks of contemporary American composition: monumental in scale and embracing a wide expressive spectrum with ease and visceral power, Adler merges twenty-first century ebullience with an almost classical economy and balance.

Don’t play this if you have a hangover. The American composer Samuel Adler’s sixth symphony is so loud, frantic and brilliantly exciting it will blow you across the room. In three movements it crackles with electric energy, with only the central section offering a brief respite. Yet for all the clamour it is tightly organised, with a clarity of purpose and sense of direction that sends it hurtling to a dramatic conclusion.
