Gavin Friday & The Friday-Seezer Ensemble

Peter And The Wolf (Official Soundtrack): CD


Release Date: 20 October, 2023

“Gavin’s retelling of Prokofiev’s ‘Peter and the Wolf’ is as original as he is… sometimes a story like this can sneak into your heart and never leave.” Bono

The brand new animated rendition of Sergei Prokofiev’s much-loved symphony, ‘Peter & The Wolf’, transformed into an enchanting and contemporary visual masterpiece that touches on themes of growing up, loss, courage, transformation, and our relationship with nature. Featuring music and narration by Gavin Friday, and artwork based on original illustrations by Bono, the animated short film is scheduled to premiere later this year and is part of an ongoing relationship with Irish Hospice Foundation.

The uniquely creative project is led by musician and composer Gavin Friday and saw him narrate the reimagined classic tale with The Friday Seezer Ensemble performing Prokofiev score, newly arranged by Maurice Seezer and Gavin Friday. Alongside this remarkable new film, Peter & The Wolf is subject to a re-release as a book and in audio form with brand new auditory and visual material, to be released across various formats by BMG in November/December 2023.

The 1CD version will be presented in a reverse board, luxe paper sleeve and includes remastered audio as well as imagery from the animated film.
