One thought on “Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf: With a Fully-Orchestrated and Narrated CD

  1. David Goetz

    All the reviews are combined for this tale, which is unfortunate in light of how many versions there are I read the mechanical pop up version, with scenes done by Barbara Cooney The tale is famous, of course, and worth reading perhaps for that reason alone the scenes are beautiful and convincingly Russian But it s the pop up aspect of the book that makes it wonderful Most pop up books are forgettable and deserve to be destroyed precisely when your toddler gets them alone in a room and destroys t [...]

    I d somehow never heard this before Music from it tends to get quoted often, but I never knew the origin I enjoyed how each character has its own instrument which helps the listener to better imagine the story through the music The story is simple, but my 6 year old listened to it on repeat for several days after we listened to it together.I ve often imagined my own stories to go along with classical music pieces It s just a shame there aren t musical pieces with story accompaniments for childr [...]

    I just wanted to know what the story was, and hoped a nice picture book would prove enlightening than a entry Not so much I guess I need the music, and probably a teacher too The pictures in this are appealing, though.I read the hardcover with the Reading Rainbow sticker, same illustration as the Puffin pb 0140506330

    Absolutely gorgeous book AND it came with the CD with the music, just a wonderful experience all around

    3.5 starsNarrated by Jim DaleThis short audiobook was a nice blend of music and storytelling I was familiar with the music, and last year had watched an animated short of this title from iTunes The animated short provided a lovely visual of what the story the music was expressing, and it was this short animation that remained in my memory as I listened to this narration of the same story I liked the narration The narrator s use of inflections, different voices, and voice acting made it fun to li [...]

    This is an adaptation of the orchestral folk tale by Sergei Prokofiev set in a Russian forest.It is a story of a boy who goes out into the woods and the comings and goings of the animals Each animal is introduced one by one, as was done in the original music a boy venturing out into the woods, a bird, cat, duck, and then a wolf stalking the cat Later it introduces the hunters who have been tracking the wolf through the forest.This is a great portrayal of nature and the food chain, one animal hun [...]

    Peter and the Wolf was composed in the USSR in 1936 by Sergei Prokofiev It forms the soundtrack for this story to introduce children to the different instruments of the orchestra The book introduces each character with its own instrument to match their characteristics For example, the haunting French Horns accompany the introduction of the wolf This version of the story is very well illustrated and surrounding each box of text are pictures of the instruments accompanying the story These can be u [...]

    I love Jim Dale and I absolutely loved this one This is a magical, musical adaptation of the story of Peter and the Wolf I have seen this performed by a symphony at my hometown when I was very young and my mom was trying to get me to love classical music It had illustrations on the back and it was narrated too She succeeded I was enchanted by how well every instrument matched every animal.Jim Dale s narration was exceptional, as he can voice characters in a very unique way.Outside it s snowing r [...]

    I thought this might bore my preschoolers and kindergardeners, but they were rapt They adored it One five year old belted out, Now THAT S what I call good music in the middle of it They were so invested in the fates of everyone in the story some were calling for mercy for the wolf, some were calling for blood The music stirred them up and made the whole experience really gripping It was a really, really fun time.I appreciate that there wasn t much violence in this edition, but I found the surviv [...]

    There is a large connection between the story of Peter and the Wolf and music that I was completely unaware of.While I did not take the time to listen to it, there was a disc that was included with this book After reading some other pages in the book, I discoverd that this was originally wrote as music Each of the different animals in the book represents a different musical instrument After reading the book, I find this very interesting, simply because I cannot see this story being portrayed in [...]

  15. Thomas

    This is the first book given to me so I could begin learning the German language It is a well known story, which helped with the learning process as my mind helped fill in the blanks where vocabulary failed The words are laid out in a manner that attends to the natural emphasis which parents will put on words, like this er erreichte sie,erpackte sieundverschlang sie This gives the reader time to focus on each verb and realize the dire situation the duck is in The illustrations were excellent, an [...]

    Here is another illustrated version of Peter and the Wolf Mikolaycak s paintings are realistic than Beck s Peter and the Wolf, and they express a brave and dramatic mood very fitting for Prokofiev s wonderful musical creation They are just a little frightening than Beck s, but still aren t very scary Carlson s translation of the piece is quite smooth, but it will fall to an adult to explain which musical instruments are represented by each character It is, however, widely available than Beck [...]

    don t have this one w the cd although that would be nice bought a copy for W at 1 2 price books the other day it s really not that great of a story w o the music i discovered the music is what makes it the ending is totally random and leaves you going do whut but, it s a classic and the little man has got to start on the classics early i remember listening to a vinyl of the story as read by William F Buckley Jr w music of course i must say a better voice could not be found for this story.

    Damn, couldn t the poor little duck have lived I mean, jeez, the poor duck is just sitting there, alive and quacking, in the wolf s stomach and no one even tried to save him It s a children s book Make the wolf spit her back out Poop her out something Poor little duck The story, besides that sad, sad part, was only so so in my opinion I have a feeling that listening to the musical tale would be so much better Maybe I can get that done someday.

  20. Angie

    This is on my to buy list We checked it out at the library in St Louis and listened to the CD as we followed along in the book I really enjoyed it in the book CD format better than watching the story on TV I also just love how the story introduces different parts of the orchestra A wonderful way to teach children about orchestral instruments and introduce how music is often a story.

  21. Rachel

    This version was translated by Maria Carlson and illustrated by the Charles Mikolaycak The book is a shortened version of the Peter and the Wolf story, and the wolf gets taken to the zoo by the hunters who were tracking him These illustrations are good too, though he should stick to people rather than animals, as he seems to capture them better.

  22. Clare Mcpherson

    I have not read tis since childhood I always think of the music I would use this to help the children understand the care of aimals in nature and being brave The pride the village had in Peter, for doing the right thing Thiscould be a character builder for all children and a reminder for adults

  23. Andrew

    So, Peter parades the wolf into town to be sold to some traveling zoo And the duck is still in the wolf s belly This story bummed me out At least let the hunters just put the poor wolf out of his misery You re not doing the wolf any favors there, Pete Should ve listened to Ol Grandad, but you had go and be a hero

  24. Ivy

    I found this to be a beautifully simple retelling of this folktale The illustrations are reminiscent of Jan Brett They are probably the most Russian looking of all the retellings I have looked at I enjoyed this very much.

  25. heidi

    Spoiler The wolf goes to a flippin zoo I mean, I m okay with the duck living in other versions as I m partial to the poor duck But are we so afraid of death that the wolf must go to the zoo Perhaps I m remembering the original story wrong I apologize if that is so.

  26. Kathleen

    The boys still pop this cd in the player, and in our quieter moments will follow along with the book, even though they re capable readers Such a great story and a lovely introduction to orchestral music The boys are to the point of being able to pick out the different instruments.
