This musical CD makes for truly delightful listening and is also a great introduction for young people learning to appreciate classical music. The narration of ''Peter and the Wolf" is especially charming to hear as done by Sean Connery.
The "Lieutenant Kijé Suite" is musically interesting with distinct movements, which allow the listnener to imagine a whole story in several parts. It demonstrates how artfully musical instrumentation can be used to build memorable storylines, scenes, and even to bring the personas of characters to life.
The last part: "Britten: Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra" is wonderfully educational and introduces each musical instrument in the orchestra one at a time, describing it's sound and the variety of effects it can achieve.
Lastly, the CD comes with a very informative short booklet (liner notes) which contains interesting information about the music and about the whole history and evolution of recording processes, equipment, and techniques.
