David Bowie Narrates Prokofiev's Peter And The Wolf

I must have had this as a kid, it is super-familiar. There’s a Wikipedia entry for it HERE.

Each character in the story has a particular instrument and a musical theme:

Bird: flute
Duck: oboe
Cat: clarinet
Grandfather: bassoon
Wolf: French horns
Hunters: woodwind theme, with gunshots on timpani and bass drum
Peter: string instruments
