Often referred to as the “Seventh Brandenburg Concerto", the 'Dumbarton Oaks’ Concerto dates from Stravinsky's American and Neoclassical period. Fifteen musicians, treated as soloists, engage in joyful parlour banter punctuated by syncopated rhythms which make us want to dance. The tale of Peter and the Wolf, an educational guide to the instruments of the orchestra as well as a work of political satire, has enchanted not only Russian children, but youngsters the world over.
