Album Notes
The enclosed 24-page program book includes a biography of Prokofiev, information about the Russian instruments, the music for Peter’s theme tune, background information about the performers, a crossword puzzle and other fun activities.

This CD is part of the Stories in Music™ series of classical recordings for families produced by Maestro Classics and originally premiered at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Maestro Stephen Simon and music educator/producer Bonnie Ward Simon have now recorded the series with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, adding additional educational and participatory tracks to each CD. Rave reviews nationwide and numerous awards have greeted this unique series with its signature format.

Other CDs in the series: Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, Juanita the Spanish Lobster (also available in Spanish language edition Juanita la langosta española), Casey at the Bat, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, The Story of Swan Lake, and Tortoise and the Hare.

Each CD is a combination of music and educational information designed to give the listener ideas on what to listen for and how to listen. It is the “backstage pass” into the minds of the author, composer, and conductor, namely the creators of the work. The CDs also include sing-along or play-along tracks for audience participation.

Excellent for family car trips, school carpool, music teachers’ music appreciation classes, and elementary school teachers who want to include music in their classrooms.

Three significant benefits:

1. Discover the magical sounds of the symphony orchestra.

2. Encourage adults and children to listen to music together.

3. Improve listening skills and accumulate musical memories.
