A wonderful, typography-filled performance of “Peter and the Wolf”

This was just what I needed on this rainy quarantine day. From the always awesome The Kid Should See This:

In 2014, Camera Lucida and Radio France teamed up to create a series of classical music-filled apps for children. One of these shared Sergei Prokofiev’s Pierre et le loup in a typography-filled adaptation by Gordon (Thierry Guernet), Pierre-Emmanuel Lyet, and Corentin Leconte. It’s a stunning version that mixes animation, musical symbols, and musicians, featuring the National Orchestra of France, conducted by the maestro Daniele Gatti.

Don’t let the name fool you, The Kid Should See This has plenty of wonderful stuff that adults will enjoy, too.
