Stravinsky: The Soldier’s TaleAdd to calendar
Like many artists in Europe, Stravinsky had fled to neutral Switzerland, where he met the author Charles F Ramuz. His story of the soldier who sold his violin to the devil for glory and money was also a reflection of the artists’ terms. Freedom or success? Stravinsky was perhaps proof that both were possible.
The music, influenced by jazz and with elements such as ragtime and tango, does very well on its own. This is shown by Santtu-Matias Rouvali and musicians from the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in the suite of vivid movements Stravinsky compiled from the original music.
