Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf: With a Fully-Orchestrated and Narrated CD

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THERE IS NO better way to introduce children to classical music than with Prokofiev's musical fairy tale of the little boy (played by all the strings of the orchestra) who, with the help of a bird(played by the flute), outsmarted the big, bad wolf (played by the French horns). And now with this book and CD package, children can look and listen all at the same time. A new retelling by Janet Schulman follows thebasic story, but with a kinder ending for both the big bad wolf and the argumentative duck. Peter Malone's paintings have the luminous quality of old Russian masters. The CD, with music performed by theCincinnati Pops and word-for-word narration by Peter A. Thomas, was made exclusively for this book and CD package.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

With the help of a bird, a little boy named Peter outsmarts the big, bad wolf, in a retelling of the classic composition for children, which includes a fully orchestrated and narrated CD. Read by Peter A. Thomas.
