Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf is performed by the SLSO with Music Director Stéphane Denève and narrator Alicia Revé Like, recorded on May 7-9, 2021. In this classic orchestral story, each character is portrayed by a different instrument. It’s a great way to learn about the sounds of the orchestra!
A virtual adventure to the Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka, Missouri, with Kevin McBeth frames the concert. You’ll learn about Prokofiev’s compositional choices and all the things he did not know about wolves. Maybe that wolf isn’t such a menace after all… and maybe your students would have written different music for him!
