Peter & The Wolf

The great Russian composer, Sergei Prokofiev composed many of his most popular works, including Peter and the Wolf in 1936. Prokofiev subtitled this piece “An Orchestral Fairy Tale for Children,” but he should have added “and for adults, too,” as this remarkable composition is appealing to people of all ages. The story of Peter and the Wolf is told by a narrator, with the orchestra musically illustrating the events that unfold for the audience.
