Book-CD Peter and the Wolf


Everyone knows Prokofiev's symphonic tale... A story like no other, told in music and by the instruments of the orchestra. Each character in the story is represented by a different instrument that plays a musical phrase. Thus the child can easily recognize the bird, the duck, the cat, the grandfather, the hunters and of course Peter and the wolf... But in this case, it is Bernard Friot who seizes the end of the tale to knit him a sequel to the small onions " The Duck is always alive "... And when Bernard Friot attacks the classics, no doubt that the fall will not be that which one expects...
