On February 10 in Moscow, former USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev recorded the introduction to a forthcoming RNO CD, which will feature RNO recordings of Sergei Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" along with Jean Pascal Beintus' new work, "Wolf Tracks," commissioned by the RNO.

 

Former US President Bill Clinton and actress Sophia Loren recorded the narration to "Wolf Tracks" at a session in Geneva in December. The project's artistic director is Kent Nagano, a member of the RNO's Conductor's Collegium.
