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.

The enclosed 24-page activity book contains a biography of Stravinsky, The Soldier's Tale story with illustrations by Brigitta Sif, and more!
