About The Soldier's Tale
The Soldier's Tale (L'Histoire du soldat) is Stravinsky's greatest work for narrator and orchestra. It is the story of a soldier, on leave from the army, who trades his old violin for a magic book that can tell the future and make him rich. He soon discovers, however, that he has made a deal with the devil and that money does not bring happiness.
Featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Grammy nominated conductor Stephen Simon, Narrator Yadu and a guest appearance by the Amazing Baz, this is the best way to introduce your children to Igor Stravinksy, one of the world's most famous and influential composers.
