Carnival of the Animals and Peter and the Wolf—two classical music masterpieces—are reinvented for young audiences by Frederic Chiu’s brilliant piano transcription and David Gonzalez’ original, funky poetry. Written by French romantic composer Camille Saint-Saëns in 1886, Carnival of the Animals is a musical suite introducing residents of the animal kingdom to classical music enthusiasts. Peter and the Wolf, written by Russian composer and pianist Sergei Prokofiev in 1936, is a symphony fairy tale for children to cultivate their musical taste.
