March 2019 Gramophone Magazine Review for Gershwin Centennial Edition
“this recording reappears on Somm 20 years later, tying in with José Serebrier’s 80th birthday. Its main points of interest concern the conductor’s splendid orchestrations of the three piano Preludes. The first stands out for Serebrier’s witty and unpredictable use of brass instruments and his ingenuously varied cymbal fills when the main theme recapitulates. … Serebrier effectively expands upon the Lullaby’s original string incarnation as well. … Richard Freed’s informative booklet notes are reproduced from the original CD release. Get this disc for Serebrier’s orchestrations.”—Jed Distler, Gramophone Magazine
