This collection of live performances from Snape Maltings Concert Hall present some of the most popular classical works for younger audiences. Their perennial appeal is a result of vivid melodies, witty instrumental characterisation, and in three works, the use of spoken texts to illuminate the narrative. Whether composed to amuse, entertain or educate, each possesses marvellous vitality, lyricism and bravura. The performances are conducted and narrated by Marin Alsop, one of the world’s most inspirational musical communicators.
Includes:Saint-Saëns: The Carnival of the Animals - Ravel: Mother Goose - Prokofiev: Peter and the Wolf - Britten: The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra,
