PETER AND THE WOLF
Composed by: Sergei Prokofiev
In 1936, Sergei Prokofiev was commissioned by the Central Children’s Theatre in Moscow to write a new musical symphony for children. Prokofiev completed Peter and the Wolf in just four days. Since the first American recording in 1939 there have been numerous English language versions featuring a variety of narrators including Patrick Stewart, Mia Farrow, and Sting. The version used in today’s performance is narrated by Jeremy Nicholas with orchestration by the Czecho-Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra.
