About

Sergei Prokofiev’s final years were clouded by ill-health, and the Seventh Symphony was his last significant work, full of poignant nostalgia and restrained but deeply expressed emotion. The Love for Three Oranges consolidated Prokofiev’s reputation in the West in the 1920s, both this and the satirical tale of Lieutenant Kijé producing two of his most popular suites. This is the final volume of the acclaimed cycle of Prokofiev’s Symphonies with the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marin Alsop. One of the strengths of this Prokofiev symphonic cycle has been the inclusion of numerous significant orchestral works. This final volume is no exception.

This cycle has been widely acclaimed, including from BBC Music Magazine on the Sixth Symphony (8573518), “the recording balance is outstanding and the playing of the São Paolo Symphony is exceptionally fine”, and MusicWeb International on the Fourth Symphony (8573186), “This account of a somewhat problematic symphony is a joy from beginning to end. …the São Paolo Symphony plays its heart out for Alsop.” The first volume with the Fifth Symphony
(8573029) appeared in June 2012 and was considered “an outstanding achievement” by BBC Music Magazine.
