Marin Alsop, conductor
The São Paulo Symphony Orchestra's musicians and Principal Conductor Marin Alsop are joined by members of the São Paulo Jazz Symphony Orchestra for a landmark celebration of Brazilian popular-music from the past 100 years.
Few countries can boast such an ingrained and individual popular music tradition as Brazil, and this feel-good Prom will take you from the African influenced rhythms and Chopinesque chromaticism of Brazilian street music to the outlandish constructions of the so-called São Paulo avant-garde - all from the best Brazilian players in the business.
