I like Peter and the Wolf. (Especially that Jonathan Winters version that b.com found!)

But, then, I really like Bolero, too. I think maybe I should request Bolero and the Wolf. :grin:

I like Peter and the Wolf also, it has it's charm.

I unfortunately don't feel the same way regarding Bolero. :roll:

Whistling along with the Rejouissance and the guys in the other cubicles are complaining.

Not a problem. If they should try, I'd just whack 'em with my purple paisley cane. :grin:

Peter and the Wolf is alright, but I do get tired of it. I really don't like the Jonathan Winters version.

Beethoven.com has a version of Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals they play occasionally that includes narration by some famous musician, but I don't recall who it is. I keep thinking Isaac Stern, but I don't think that's right. I like that version.

It's Perlman, Shap. But I think there are two narrators, or Perlman speaks with different accents.

Yeah, I knew it was piano player. :D :roll:

Thanks. I had looked for the one at the local Barnes & Noble, to no avail. Now that I know the narrator, I should be able to look it up.

Yeah Baby!!!!

I would have to say, the Anvil Chorus, which my dear departed Italian Grandmother used to play for me (we would pound pillows with my toy hammers in time with the gypsies) was probably my first introduction to Opera at around age 4 or 5. She would then tell me scary stories of Le Zingare (the gypsies) in her home town, which made no sense what so ever, but I just nodded my head. Whenever my sister and I would get dressed up for Halloween, a holiday she could not grasp, she would call us Le Zingare, the gypsies. I have no idea why.

My uncle (Grandma's son) had an anthology of opera and classical music that he used to play. Another favorite was the Hungarian Rhapsody 2 ??????. I'd be bouncing off the walls when they played that just like in the famous Looney Toons cartoon. As I grew older I got into Carmen, Aida. I went to High School around 3 blocks from Lincoln Center. I used to buy standing room tickets for $2.50 USD after school and go to the opera. I didn't let anyone else in my school know as I probably would have been beaten up.
