Prokofiev: Symphony No. 4
São Paulo Symphony Orchestra

…these performances from Marin Alsop and her Brazilian orchestra are particularly arresting for their fusion of zest, rhythmic bite, strength of character and sure handling of Prokofiev’s orchestral palette. ****

…if you usually find the composer too raw, Alsop’s integrated, lyrical view of these works could be just the ticket.
