FTL: Sergei Prokofiev

Radio Riel presents in today’s Pro­gramme a show­cas­ing of Sergei Prokofiev. Best known to most audi­ences for com­pos­ing Peter and the Wolf in 1936. A Russ­ian Com­pos­er best known for mas­ter­ing sev­er­al gen­res, he became one of the great­est com­posers in the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry. A selec­tion of his sonatas, bal­lets and sym­phonies will be played today.

As a treat, we have a copy of the pre­mière per­for­mance of Peter and the Wolf from 1939 for Amer­i­can audi­ences. Played by the Boston Sym­pho­ny Orches­tra and Nar­rat­ed by Richard Hale.
