Wind and Fire: Nicholas Parsons – Peter and the Wolf
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Nicholas Parsons, Radio 4 legend, narrates the children's classic tale Peter and the Wolf, arranged by Tom David Wilson for double-reed and brass ensemble and conducted by John Grundy. Originally inspired by Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks for oboes, bassoons, horns, trumpets, serpents and timpani. The band will play selections from this signature work together with new arrangements by Geoffrey Emerson and Simon Rennard. Nicholas Parsons will be introduced by The Minute Waltz played by Rory Kemp. All proceeds to charity, including the Anthony Nolan fund.
