The ‘Cats’ composer gave a sweet performance of Prokofiev to his four-legged companion in celebration of International Cat Day.

Andrew Lloyd Webber serenaded his cat with a brief performance of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf on the weekend – and it’s purr-fectly adorable (watch below).

Sitting in front of his gleaming grand piano, the Cats composer gave his own feline, Fez, a special musical treat.

His furry friend sits atop the instrument and gazes down intently at the keys as Lloyd Webber aptly plays ‘The Cat’ from Prokofiev’s symphonic fairy tale. A furry good choice.

The video was shared by the music legend on Saturday (8 August) to celebrate International Cat Day.

After he’s finished playing the brief piece, Lloyd Webber says, “He’s a very musical cat today”, before going on to give the catto a loving stroke.

The post’s caption on Instagram adds: “I hope all your cats are enjoying a spoiling day!”

Cats, Prokofiev and Andrew Lloyd Webber – what more could we ask for?
