Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an ... Read more in Amazon's David Bowie Store

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Peter and The Wolf", as presented by 'David Bowie' and by Eugene Ormonde with 'The Philadelphia Orchestra', is a stylishly rendered classic. Bowie's soft and clear voice should please older traditionalists and young listeners alike. Note that those expecting a 'souped-up' version of the story - because it is "BOWIE" - are going to be disappointed! The 'fillers' of "The Young Person's Guide" and "The Nutcracker Suite" are also well-played and accessible Classics.

This was bought for a music loving autistic grandchild. He loves it. He dances as it plays. I thought it was great many years ago. Good for promoting children's interest in music.

Great for pre-schoolers 27 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My 3 1/2 year old son loves to listen to classical music on the radio. I bought this CD for him for Christmas, and it has him transfixed. Bowie's narration is excellent, and the changed ending (though it may offend purists) is much better for the preschool set. Peter and the Wolf is nicely complemented by the Nutcracker. Highly recommened for parents to share with their children.

David Bowie tells us a fearful story 9 Aug. 2002
By Jacques COULARDEAU - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Prokofiev here produces a rare and fresh musical story for children. A young boy decides one day to push the gate at the bottom of the garden and move into the big wild world and its dangers, a wolf and a cat. The boy is followed by his friend the duck and meets his other friend the bird who is saved by a split-hair chance from the teeth of the cat by Peter's cry of alarm. All dangers in the world are not from the deep forest. But a far worse danger comes from there : the wolf. If Peter is saved by his grandfather who takes him home, the duck is less lucky and ends up in the wolf's stomach. But Peter is looking after things with the help of the bird and they catch the wolf that is then taken to the zoo by the hunters. We are not always saved from dangers by big strong armed men, but mostly by our courage and inventive imagination. And the music tells us to be creative.
This tale is perfectly served by David Bowie's both deep and volatile voice that finds here a brand new field of artistic achievement and multiplies the music's real dramatic dimension, like a confidential story told to the listeners in their deepest ears as if he were an elfish fairy any kid would believe to be true and safe, in a word friendly.

My son's discovery of classical music 16 May 2003
By Ei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My son's growing obsession with this story has truly sprouted since the purchase of this album.
Oddly enough, I never really knew this story or I don't remember it from my childhood, but once my dear sweet boy discovered it's haunting and charging sound, it's become a staple in my vehicle.
A perfect way to introduce classical music to any child -- tell them a story and have all the parts of the story be different instruments from an orchestra. Beautiful, just beautiful..

At least RCA kept it in print! 12 July 1999
By Clyde D. Hoops - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Having first had this album on green vinyl no less back in 1977/8 I was not at all suprised to learn that Mr. Bowie had narrated such a classic opera in fact I was very pleased and would listen to it often.
Having played in the public school orchestras for over ten years back then it was also a shot in the arm to know that (at that time) a young teenager could not only identify with classical music and a leading pop idol of the times. Now at the age of forty and with my own children I find it an interesting way for my own to learn about classical music, the Philadelphia Orchestra (5 Stars to them) and Eugene Ormandy (10 stars to him).
As far as the previous review goes don't be dismayed because the ending was changed to siut the narrators needs or whatever, this is hardly as back-handed as what Disney studios has been doing for the past 20 odd years and making much more money doing it.
Buy this if you like the story, the narrator, the conductor or the orchestra, your children (if you have any, and not a prerequisit) will love it and you will too when you share this recording. Not often a fan of cheap RCA records, but at least they kept this one in print.

"Defective" Nutcracker Tracks 13 Feb. 2011
By Barbara Ellingsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The narration of Peter and the Wolf by David Bowie is fantastic. That is why I ordered the product. I am a music teacher, and want to use this with my young students. However, the Nutcracker tracks are all cut short--each is missing the last several seconds of the recording. Why include this music if you are going to butcher it by cutting it short? If there was not enough time on the CD to include it all, just leave it off! What a waste!
