English Sinfonia continue their residency at The Elgiva with a classic work for all the family – Sergei Prokofiev’s symphonic fairy tale for children, Peter and the Wolf.

“In the spring of 1936,” Prokofiev recorded in his diary, “I started a symphonic tale for children titled ‘Peter and the Wolf.’ Every character in the story had its own motif played each time by the same instrument. 

Before each performance, the instruments were shown to the children and the themes played for them; during the performance, the children heard the themes repeated several times and learned to recognise the timbres of the different instruments… for me, the story was important only as a means of inducing the children to listen to the music.”

Peter and the Wolf from the English Sinfonia

The English Sinfonia is one of the earliest established chamber orchestras in the UK, well-known for their engaging interpretations of British music.

Under the leadership of distinguished violinist Janice Graham, today’s orchestra is a versatile and flexible ensemble, formed of a core group of well-established players each at the height of their career, who as individuals perform music of many genres in a variety of settings, from symphonic and chamber music, opera and ballet to commercial music and film/tv soundtracks. Spanning almost six decades, the orchestra’s discography is rich in 19th and 20th century music, including both familiar and lesser-known works by Holst, Butterworth, Vaughan Williams and Bridge.

“With a musician like Graham at its helm, it’s no wonder the English Sinfonia has earned such a prominent place on the international music scene.”
– The Strad
