Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, in which a young boy catches a wolf and brings him to the zoo, is arguably the most famous children’s story with classical music. Once designed to introduce young audiences to the workings of an orchestra and its instruments, it showcases the composer’s superb ability to bring a simply story to life, giving each character a recognizable motive and instrumental colour. This Grammy-winning recording was made in 2003, with multi-award-winning actress Sophia Loren narrating the story, accompanied by the Russian National Orchestra under the baton of Kent Nagano.
