It is not difficult to find reasons for the phenomenal success which Peter and the Wolf has achieved since its first performance in Moscow in 1936, for this work contains something for everybody. It has catchy tunes in plenty; it has gaiety; simplicity of construction; and it has its harmonic astringencies for those who, so to speak, prefer acid-drops to treacle toffee. And over-riding the musical structure itself is the cheerful commentary of the narrator, which can be enjoyed for its own sake by all those with any sense of fun or fantasy.

You need to crank the volume up on this poor quality recording, I would not bother buying this version if I were you.
The other observation is that it has been copied at an unbelievably low level, requiring you to turn the volume full up. This does the old recording no favours. However, I'm all in favour of Classical CD 'singles' and this one has the original Decca sleeve as its cover design.
Narration was stilted and boring; I was very disappointed definitely unsuitable for introducing young children to the delightful music.
