Conductor Marin Alsop launched a project with the London Philharmonic to record the four Brahms symphonies for the Naxos label. The first installment was released in February, containing Brahms's Symphony No. 1. Fred talks with Alsop about the recording and her experience with Brahms. Then, from the recording, we hear her lead the London Philharmonic in the last movement of the Symphony No. 1.
