The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra: Peter & The Wolf And The Carnival Of The Animals

Music arranged and orchestrated by Tommy Smith and Makoto Ozone and text adapted by Liz Lochhead and narrated by Tam Dean Burn. Two new interpretations of two popular classics that will appeal to music lovers of all ages. “Ah’m a grandfaither masel noo. But I want to tell ye aw a story. This is the story aboot me, me and the Wolf”.  So begins Tommy Smith’s Scottish jazz version of  Prokofiev’s classic Peter and the Wolf. Actor Tam Dean Burn will narrate new text, especially adapted by former Makar Liz Lochhead. Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals, re-imagined by Makoto Ozone, evokes a dizzying, dazzling, zoological roundabout, with pianist, Pete Johnstone, traversing the classical and jazz genres, with the SNJO “at full power..Full of wit… and they swung. Hugely entertaining”(On The Beat).
