Peter and the Wolf - Cat Theme (clarinet) Prokofiev Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Prokofiev wrote Peter and the Wolf as an introduction to the instruments of the orchestra for children, tying fairy-tale characters to certain orchestral instruments. The director of the Central Children's Theatre in Moscow, (Natalie Satz) asked Sergei Prokofiev to create this work, he was so fascinated by the idea that he set to work immediately on both words and music. Within a fortnight he had created Peter and the Wolf.

Each of the characters in the story is represented by a different instrument or group of instruments, enabling listeners to identify the bird (flute), the duck (oboe), the cat (clarinet), Peter's grandfather (bass), the wolf (four horns) and Peter himself (the string section) as they appear. Despite being coolly received at its official premiere in May 1936, the work proved enormously successful when Natalie Satz narrated it a few weeks later at her children's theatre and it has remained so ever since.
