Peter and the Wolf is a work of considerable charm for people of all ages. Jeremy Nicholas enters the menagerie of recordings on offer. It was my introduction to the piece. Leopold Stokowski was not the conductor on that occasion, as he had been for the original Fantasia in 1940, but had already recorded the work in 1941 with Basil Rathbone and the All-American Orchestra. Stokowski’s soloists vividly characterise their parts, tempi are brisk, while Rathbone, the definitive Sherlock Holmes of his day, injects pace and drama into the text. Great literature it ain’t.
