Prokofiev’s classic orchestra piece. The story is about the young Peter, who accidentally releases a duck from his grandfather’s farm. The duck will be eaten by the wolf and the hunters want to shoot it, but Peter prevents them and is instead taken to the zoo.
The work is also an introduction to the orchestra’s instrument and classical music. The music is written for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, three horns, trumpet, trombone, timpani, triangle, tamburine, cymbals, castanets, drums, bass drums and strings. Each role in the story has its own instrument and a motive.
