Filmed in Chester Cathedral during the National Youth Orchestra of Spain's 2007 European tour, this concert features Leopold Stokowski's inimitable and colourful transcriptions of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhbition and "A Night on Bare Mountain," the latter made famous by its inclusion in the 1940 Walt Disney film Fantasia. Jose Serebrier's "Symphonie mystique," for strings, was written in the space of just one week in 2003. Serebrier's earlier recording of this work was hailed by FonoForum magazine as "a vital, elegant masterwork…a shimmering prism of tone…clearly formed and with a sure hand for reaching great heights of ecstasy."
