 Just beautiful February 17, 2014 By Jan Venter (Johannesburg, gauteng) See All My Reviews "Having performed the wolf in Peter and the Wolf many times when I was a dancer in the Cape Performing Arts ballet Company.....in the Great Frank Staff Choreography,I thought of all the recordings I know this one is just superb...The Winter Bonfire I had on a Supraphon recording on Vinyl...which I still have and listen to..my only problem is that I wish that the Bonfire was not, as the Duckling... presentd in English. Why not simply have a translation in the booklet. Otherwise I just love this performance....congratulations to all concerned.." Report Abuse
