Following on from Music Makers part one as promised, this is part two of the Furkids Music series. This week we round off the TEDdy Talk with the four sections of the orchestra then it’s onto the Coda.

This week the coda is a symphonic fairytale narrated by David Bowie with the Philadelphia Orchestra playing the character roles. It’s the tale of Peter and the Wolf, written and composed by Ukrainian Sergei Prokofiev in 1936.

I first heard the story when I was very very young. My favourite character was Peter and I thought the wolf was very scary! So hold the hands and paws of the little ones as you listen.

  1. {{{Michelle}}} The Furkids seem to be having a ball with the instruments. & how lovely to give us Peter & the Wolf as a coda. Skritches and {{{HUGS}}} as appropriate. Healing Energy & moar {{{HUGS}}}

    • I hadn’t heard Peter and the Wolf in years! I was so thrilled to find it and it seemed the purrfect coda for this 2-part series on music. I hope others like it too, especially the young ones who’ve never heard it before.

  2. And this old one who also had never listened to it before. It may have been played some time when I was a child, but I don’t remember ever hearing the story, although the music theme was familiar. Thanks Michelle. I loved it, and your pictures were perfect.
