About José Serebrier

José Serebrier is better known as a conductor than a composer, though in the late '90s and early years of the new century, he garnered a fair amount of attention for his compositions. His works are written in a tonal and quite approachable style and divulge his mastery of orchestration and deft sense for instrumental color. His earliest surviving work dates back to 1948, Sonata for solo violin, Op. 1. He made his first recording in 1974, the Ives Symphony No. 4 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra that drew high praise from critics in Europe and the U.S., where it received a Grammy nomination. A collection of Serebrier's compositions, Last Tango Before Sunrise, was issued in 2021, with the composer conducting several of the works. He has received 45 Grammy nominations, winning a total of eight Grammy Awards, including one in 2004 for his own Carmen Symphony.
