5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful rendition February 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
How to choose from so many performances of Prokofiev's Peter and the wolf? Of course the orchestra should play well and the sound must be good. But with Peter and the wolf this will all mean nothing if the narrator thinks he's funny, can't deliver or bores thehell out of you. In this version, you can besure of one thing: it has not and will never be told better than by Sir John Gielgud. Buy it and you will not be sorry.

Oh, by the way, sound and orchestra are just fine!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for the price March 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very good rendition at a fair price. However, the narration is very soft, and when you turn it up so that it can be heard clearly, the music blasts you off your seat.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fine recording November 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Don't let the low price fool you into thinking something is amiss with this recording. It sounds wonderful. It has been a very long time since I've heard any recording of this narrated story and this was a very pleasant revisit of Peter and the Wolf.

4.0 out of 5 stars We love this CD! January 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a great introduction to different instruments in the orchestra as the music tells the story along with the narrator. My kids love Peter and the Wolf, and the Carnival of the Animals is great fun too!

My cocker spaniel loves this story. She can listen to Peter and the Wolf for hours, while dreaming of her next hunt. Thank you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Interpretation September 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have a short list of items I buy to give as baby shower gifts, and this album is one of them. I loved "Peter and the Wolf" growing up, and I think Sir John Gielgud does a nice job with his narration. I would have preferred if it were coupled with "A Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra", instead of "Carnival of the Animals", but most young mothers don't care so much. It does make for a unique shower gift, and I hope it gets used!
