“There's a real sense that Sting is enjoying being part of the music-making, adding to the drama with his quaking grandfather voice… and sending shivers down our spine as the wolf appears. There's no hint of a rock-star image here… The Chamber Orchestra of Europe's playing under Claudio Abbado is consistently immaculate with an outstanding string sound, brilliant dynamic contrasts, and superb soloists.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2007
“Abbado and the multi-talented Sting offer a lively and beautifully crafted account of Prokofiev's ever popular Peter and the Wolf. Any fears that the original freshness of Prokofiev's creation may be lost in favour of a less formal approach are soon dispelled – Sting is an effective and intelligent storyteller capable of capturing the imagination of adults and children alike, and there's never a feeling of contrivance or mere gimmickry.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

Prokofiev - Peter and the Wolf
A delightful DVD of Prokofiev’s universally beloved “musical tale“, brought to life by human actors in a fairytale world inhabited by Muppet-like puppets
“Despite its lively Spitting Image puppets, and Complicité actors, this often charming film can't quite match the genius of Suzy Templeton's darker animation (Arthaus). But Abbado's soundtrack is superb.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2007 ****
