The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra
In Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra various musical instruments get introduced in an entertaining fashion. Next to Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals and Sergej Prokofjev‘s Peter and the Wolf, Britten’s composition is one of the most widely performed musical pieces for a young audience.
The Concert is presented by Staatsorchester Stuttgart, Landesjugendorchester Baden-Württemberg and General Music Director Cornelius Meister – narrated by Ralph Caspers, well-known for the children’s TV shows Wissen macht Ah! and Die Sendung mit der Maus).
