The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra is a 1945 musical composition by Benjamin Britten with a subtitle Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell. It was based on the second movement, "Rondeau", of the Abdelazer suite.

Pictures at an Exhibition and The Young Person's Guide to Orchestra were recorded at Chicago's Medinah Temple on June 18th 1967. This "Pictures" flows with lithe, lean textured vividness. There is a forward momentum and the musical line is maintained marvelously from beginning to end. Ozawa brings out the poetry in the music while not allowing it to become lumpy. Grandeur and majesty are present but not pummeled upon. It is a magical performance. The orchestration is by Ravel.
