Notes and Editorial Reviews

Serebrier is chiefly associated, by some of us at least, with a fine account of Ives's Symphony No. 4, once on RCA... He obtains a sensitive reading of Chausson's Symphony from the RTBF orchestra as well... Serebrier goes one better by offering both [Soir de fete] and two attractive pieces from Chausson's 1888 music for Bouchor's translation of The Tempest. His last completed orchestral work, the symphonic poem Soir de fete dates from 1897-8, and has the energy, if not quite the musical richness, of the Symphony, and includes some beautiful orchestral scoring.

-- Gramophone [9/1985]
