Hello Everyone,

Well for my studio's spring performance we are doing this one piece called "A Young Persons Guide to the Orcestra"... I had never heard of it before but i haven't heard of alot of things so that really dosent count but anyway i just wanted to know if ya'll have heard of it and if you did, what you thought of it. Thanks!

If I am not mistaken the composer of "Young Persons Guide To The Orchestra" is Benjamin Britten. I love the opening of it.....but after that it gets quite faint I haven't quite made it through the whole thing I just like the opening (first minute or so). Anyhow I just thought I would tell you who the composer was so if you wanted to get the cd and listen to it before you start rehearsing you could. Again the composer is Benjamin Britten. Never seen a ballet to the music though.

It's subtitled "Variations on a Theme by Henry Purcell", and makes use of a dance theme from that composer's Abdelazer. Jerome Robbins used it for his ballet "Fanfare".
