Peter and the Wolf

Who can forget the first time they heard the menacing French horns symbolizing the wolf in Sergei Prokofiev’s classic musical tale, Peter and the Wolf? As an avid record collector today, I can trace my love of music and vinyl back to my worn copy of Disney’s version narrated by Sterling Holloway.

Written in 1936, Peter and the Wolf was first recorded in 1938 by RCA Victor on three 78 rpm records. Several decades later we witness the story’s timeless appeal by its many illustrated depictions and language translations on these vintage album covers. Visit the gallery›
