Welcome to the Fulwood website for Peter and the Wolf, Carnival of the Animals and Poulenc's Babar the Little Elephant, as performed by David Coram on the organ and David Owen Norris on the piano. The narrator is Richard Briers, loved by millions worldwide for his TV roles including The Good Life and Monarch of the Glen, and his voices for children's cartoons Roobarb and Custard and Bob the Builder.
We're very excited that the disc is to be featured on BBC Radio 2 in the UK and is being reviewed extensively over the coming months, including a half-page feature in Classical Music magazine.
The organ is a multi-talented instrument packed with many of the most vivid sounds and colours of the orchestra. Please listen to the samples, which show some of the charms of this particular organ, at Romsey Abbey in Hampshire, which was built in 1858 by J.W. Walker.
More importantly, please buy a copy of your own. This recording has been privately financed by me, because I believe that our performance adds a new dimension to both the music and the instrument and I wanted to share it with the world. We've spared no expense making this a quality product which you will enjoy for many years to come.
