Classic reissue on vinyl in a sturdy PVC bag. Originally released in 1978, this is David Bowie narrating Sergei Prokofiev’s 1936 composition Peter And The Wolf whilst the music is performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy.
Side One contains the narration by David Bowie of public domain material originally written by Prokofiev. The second side of this LP features Eugene Ormandy conducting Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Ormandy and the aforementioned musicians from Philly also back up Bowie on side one.
The Music On Vinyl re-release includes detailed liner notes on the project by Mary Campbell, specifically geared to “introduce children to the sounds of the individual instruments in the symphony orchestra.” Both Prokofiev and Britten wrote their respective pieces with this aim in mind.
