Don't Fix It

Sterling and the Wolf

I believe I have previously noted my sincere love for Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, and I may have linked to this video before (although if so I can’t find it). But I definitely haven’t posted it, and as such it’s fair game, yes? Therefore in honor of this week’s BSO concert, which includes the score in the program, here’s the 1946 Disney version of Peter and the Wolf. It’s not entirely accurate – in true Bowdlerized fashion, the duck lives, for example – but it’s good, it doesn’t veer very far, and it’s narrated by Winnie the Pooh. Win!

Favorite part: “Peter, don’t just stand that way! And don’t stand that way either.” Although the hunters are also cracking me up in a big way (they’re also my favorite part of the score, in case you were interested). Someone needs to pull me a screenshot of them for my desktop picture.


About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.
