Thomas Søndergård conducts the RSNO
Linn Recording Nominated For Latin GRAMMY
The nominees have been announced for the 17th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, and conducting legend José Serebrier, together with the RSNO, is nominated for José Serebrier Conducts Samuel Adler. This is the first time a Linn recording has been nominated for a Latin GRAMMY Award. Congratulations to all involved!
The recording explores a programme of works by the hugely influential American composer Samuel Adler: the world premiere of his Sixth Symphony, his Concerto For Cello And Orchestra (featuring young cellist Maximilian Hornung) and the tone poem Drifting On Wind And Currents.
The recording has received widespread praise:
'...a well-chiselled rollercoaster ride...Serebrier secures gusto and finesse from the orchestra...' BBC Music Magazine
'...strongly expressive and full of sonic variety and imaginative instrumental blends.' American Record Guide
'Maximilian Hornung embraces the generous, extrovert solo writing and there's an attractive heft to his sound, with the right kind of gung-ho attack...the RSNO [is] in boisterous form.' Gramophone
'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...' The Observer
The winners will be announced on 17th November 2016. View the complete list of nominees here.
