PINCUS AND THE PIG A Klezmer Tale

by | Read by Maurice Sendak

Children Family Listening • 45 min. • Audio Program • © 2004

Prokofiev's classic symphonic story of Peter and the Wolf is reinterpreted by classic children's author Maurice Sendak (WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE). Backed by a small Klezmer band, which draws the Russian flavor from Prokofiev's score and gives it a Jewish accent, Sendak narrates the story that he has adapted, telling the tale of how the boy Pincus is able to defeat a wild giant pig. Sendak's reading is beautiful, and the musical interpretation is surprisingly faithful to the original. Following the Prokofiev story are Klezmer interpretations of works by Brahms, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mahler, and Satie. Also included is a disk-sized booklet with the story and illustrations by Sendak.
