ArtistsSao Paulo Symphony Orchestra
Prokofievís imposing Fourth Symphony and his final ballet for Sergey Diagilev, The Prodigal Son, share common roots but are entirely distinctive in character. The vivid depictions in the balletís moral tale include sensual temptations, drunken debauchery, robbery and remorse. The 1947 revision of the Fourth Symphony, lengthened and enriched in orchestration by the addition of a piccolo clarinet, piano and harp, makes extended use of themes from The Prodigal Son as well as unused material.
Prokofievís Fifth Symphony with Marin Alsop and the S„o Paulo Symphony Orchestra (8573029) was described as ďan outstanding achievementĒ by BBC Music Magazine.
The success of Marin Alsop as Music Director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra was recognised when, in 2009, her tenure was extended to 2015. In 2012 she took up the post of Chief Conductor of the S„o Paulo Symphony Orchestra (OSESP), where she steers the orchestra in its artistic and creative programming, recording ventures and its education and outreach activities.
