LMP’s lockdown series draws to a close with Peter and the Wolf film9:20, 24th June 2020
London Mozart Player’s (LMP) ‘At Home with LMP’ series is drawing to a close with a film of Peter and the Wolf, narrated by actor and presenter Alexander Armstrong.
Prokofiev’s score is performed by the LMP, all videoed playing the various parts in their homes during lockdown, and the recordings mixed and produced by conductors Timothy Henty and Benjamin Pope.
Alexander Armstrong said: ‘I was delighted to be asked to narrate Peter and the Wolf for LMP. It is one of the best ways to introduce young people to classical music, and what has been achieved in splendid isolation is something of a miracle. Hats off to LMP for the incredible ‘At Home with LMP’ initiative; it has brought a lot of comfort to many people during a very difficult time.’
