Prokofiev Peter and the Wolf Listen
Jonathan Dove Gaspard’s Foxtrot
Gaspard dreams of hearing an orchestra perform live – but humans don’t let foxes into their concerts! Gaspard boards the Number 38 bus and sets off on a musical adventure. The latest tale in the delightful Gaspard the Fox series is narrated by the book’s author, Zeb Soanes.
Paired with this enchanting new work, Zeb also narrates Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. With different themes and instruments representing Peter, his grumpy grandfather, and a cast of friendly and not-so-friendly animals, this classic of musical storytelling has introduced generations of young listeners to the wonderful world of the orchestra.
