Prokofiev Kirill KarabitsPROKOFIEV: Symphony No 3 in C minor Op 44; Symphony No 7 in C# minor Op 131

(Onyx 4137)

We feature a new recording of Prokofiev's third and seventh symphonies. Robert Johnson talks to Hannah Sassman about this recording by the Bournemouth Symphony - conductor Kirill Karabits wins extra points from Robert for using the original slow ending of the Seventh Symphony, although he does include the alternate ending as an extra track on the disc.
