This Week's New Features - Thursday, October 24, 2013

Prokofiev Fourth Symphony - Marin Alsop, Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra Prokofiev's imposing Fourth Symphony and his final ballet for Sergey Dyagilev, The Prodigal Son, share common roots but are entirely distinctive in character. The vivid depictions in the ballet's 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 use of themes from The Prodigal Son. more info

A Tale of Two Cellos - Julian and Jiaxin Lloyd Webber Good original music for two cellos is quite rare to find. Here, Julian Lloyd Webber has taken music from Monteverdi to Arvo Pärt — much of it originally written for two voices — and arranged it for two cellos and accompaniment. Performing with his wife Jiaxin Lloyd Webber, their cellos blend together as they explore music of lyricism, quiet melancholy and tuneful energy. more info
