The gift that conductor and composer José Serebrier inherited from his former mentor, Leopold Stokowski, is immediately apparent upon even a brief listen to this album. Both men have an alluring gift: the ability to make an orchestra sound gorgeous. Serebrier is perhaps one of the few remaining authoritative spokesmen for Stokowski, and his passion and deep sentiment for his former mentor's works is audible. He sculpts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra into a shapely, luxurious, and rich ensemble of which Stokowski would be proud.

Fortunately, the Bach/Stokowski transcriptions are now generally recognized as masterpieces and performed by other conductors. But no one conducts them with quite the genius and love as Stokowski himself did. This CD presents several of the greatest Bach/ Stokowski transcriptions conducted by Stokowski himself. Stokowski Orchestration of Music of Bach. In a later interview, Stokowski stated that the first Bach work he orchestrated was the Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 582. However, the first Bach orchestration, or perhaps better described as an arrangement was the 'Wachet auf' portion of the famous cantata of 1731 ('Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme', or 'Sleepers Awake!', BWV 140), which the superb Stokowski Concert Register of Robert M. Stumpf, II lists as being performed March 19 and 20, 1915.
