Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf is a piece that appealed to us primarily because of the storytelling element – the narration will be undertaken by the trio while playing.
It is also a piece full of enchanting melodies and rich textures that we have enjoyed arranging to suit our instruments. Prokofiev’s colourful orchestration has been fascinating to engage with, stimulating our imagination as we hope it will the audience’s.
It’s a universally familiar tale, and suitable for children but also a sophisticated piece of music that will appeal to any age. Anyone familiar with the original will find it a rewarding new perspective on this much-loved gem.
The piece is about 30 minutes. Our performance can include some educational introduction to the music and the instruments (violin, accordion and double-bass) and also some time for questions and answers, as required.
