“Peter met wolf formed a dummy run gang”
David Bowie Narrates Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf is reissued via Sony Music Classical on CD today (issued digitally 22nd).
Originally released thirty five years ago in 1978 on the RCA Red Seal label, the music is performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy.
Bowie apparently recorded the Prokofiev favourite as a Christmas present for his seven-year-old son, Duncan, and this reissue comes just in time to brighten up the festive season for the Bowie-loving child in your life.
The release also includes Britten’s Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite.
