The American Composers Orchestra has announced a new co-commission, Symphonic B A C H Variations for Piano and Orchestra, a piano concerto by conductor/composer José Serebrier, together with the Swedish record label BIS. Yevgeny Sudbin will serve as soloist for a recording of the work, with further details—including the orchestra and a live performance date—to be announced later. BIS previously commissioned José Serebrier’s Flute Concerto with Tango, which was recorded with soloist Sharon Bezaly and the Australian Chamber Orchestra; American Composers Orchestra gave the U.S. premiere of that work in 2012. Serebrier’s previous compositions include three symphonies and concertos for violin, double bass, and harp. Founded in 1977, the New York-based American Composers Orchestra supports the creation, performance, preservation, and promulgation of music by American composers.
