Classical Music for the Young Listener
Composed in 1936, Peter and the Wolf is a fairy tale brought to life through music and dance. The story follows Peter, a young boy, and the animals he encounters near his forest home. Each character’s unique musical theme combine for a beautiful and whimsical performance reproducible by a small school band or a full orchestra.
