Prokofiev: Symphony No. 3
São Paulo Symphony Orchestra
Alsop has the measure of the symphony’s structure, dramatic pacing and emotional content, drawing a bright sound from the São Paulo players, goading them into firm rhythmic propulsion and drawing out rich strands of string sound seasoned with the acerbic harmonies and instrumental clashes that lend the symphony such a powerful impulse.
