* Peter and the Wolf - Sergei Prokofiev

Peter and the Wolf

Peter and the Wolf never fails to delight us!

We may be five years old, acting out each character and giggling through growls.  Perhaps we're ten and just beginning to compose for different instruments -- yes, the oboe really does sound like a duck, the flute like a bird!  We may be young parents sharing a joyous memory from our childhood days, as we discover a new version of this perennial favorite for our own children.  Maybe we're all grown up and teaching music ourselves now, and want to make sure that our young students have a solid grounding in orchestral music from the classical repertoire.   What better way to introduce young musicians to the orchestra than through an exciting story!
