 ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL!!!It's May 4, 2015 By Zita Carno (Tampa, FL) See All My Reviews "It's just like having a dessert luncheon---something I've always wished I could do every once in a while, three different degrees of deliciousness. First, Previn conducting Britten---the Courtly Dances from Gloriana, then the Young Person's Guide---and then that all-time Prokofiev classic Peter and the Wolf. As I listened to this last I thought back to a version I had heard years ago on an NPR station in Los Angeles, one told from Peter's point of view and centering on the disappointment of another evening of stroganoff for dinner, which cracked me up! The performances---and Previn's narration---are first-rate all the way, another tasty addition to my CD collection." Report Abuse
