    New Sounds
  • A Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra - and Other Instruments

    For this New Sounds, listen to some of "Heroic Weather," – from Alexander Desplat’s score to "Moonrise Kingdom," where every instrument is identified as it enters, much in the same way that Benjamin Britten does in his “Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra.”  That will probably bring to mind Sergei Prokofiev’s "Peter & the Wolf," (another popularly used score in children’s music education) so perhaps we’ll also hear something from that classic work.  Plus, listen to some of Mike Oldfield's “Tubular Bells” where Vivian Stanshall formally announces each instrument as it joins the mix, towards the end of the piece.  All these, and more.
