Synopsis

Album Description
"Gielgud's vocal inflections and changes of color are a continual delight to the ear." -- Gramophone "The Carnival of the Animals, with a pair of excellent pianists, Vivian Troon and Roderick Elms (who make fun of themselves with clumsy wrong notes in their self-portrait), is a vividly straightforward and lively account." --Gramophone "Bizet's delightful little work displays all of its naive charm."-- ClassicsToday The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra offers the most beloved children's classics! With Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, the journey embarks on a precarious chase-turned-hunt with the timeless narration of British thespian Sir John Gielgud. With the help of swans, tortoises, and kangaroos, the expedition continues its travels through the eclectic collection of unusual creatures in Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals. The tour comes marching and galloping to an end with Bizet's charming Jeux d'enfants (Child's Play).
