Peter and the Wolf

Described as a ‘symphonic fairy tale for children’, Sergei Prokofiev’s 1936 creation Peter & The Wolf has been a doorway into classical music for generation upon generation of kids.

One of the most performed works in the classical world, this playful, inventive and, perhaps most importantly, fun composition tells the story of a young boy who, with a little help from his woodland creature friends, manages to trap a dangerous wolf. With various instruments from the orchestra representing the characters, listeners unwittingly find themselves on two journeys of discovery.

With a reputation of their own for playful invention, The Far Flung Trio of violinist Katherine Hunka, accordian player Dermot Dunne and double bassist Malachy Robinson bring fresh energy and vitality to this most magical of works.

Prepare to be enchanted. All over again.
