Gounod’s wonderful Requiem, composed after his grandson died at four, converts deep private sorrow into great melody and sustained reflection.
It’s the Soviet young person’s guide to the orchestra. Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf has been a favourite ever since its first performance in 1936. Our fabulous narrator, Mairi Nicolson from ABC Classic, will add to the program’s delight. Don’t tell the kids but neither Peter nor the wolf come to any real harm. Pity about the duck!
Early bird until Wed 25 September
