Classical Music | Igor Stravinsky's La Historia del Soldado

Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra presents La Historia del Soldado (A Soldier's Tale)  by Stravinsky (1882-1971).

About the Program
In 1914, after early musical success in Paris, Stravinsky relocated to the Swiss Alps to give his ailing wife respite from symptoms of severe tuberculosis. What was intended as a short stay turned into a six-year exile, as World War I broke out and the Stravinskys decided to remain in neutral Switzerland. While away Stravinsky composed several works inspired by Russian folklore, and collaborated with Swiss novelist Charles Ferdinand Ramuz on “L’histoire du soldat,” a small, portable piece “to be read, played, and danced” with which the two collaborators could amass some income touring in neighboring towns. The orchestration is small and unique reflecting Stravinsky’s fascination with jazz at the time but the orchestra notably lacks piano. The work is composed for clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, violin, bass, and percussion, with a narrator portraying the characters alongside actors or dancers.

"Soldier’s Tale" is an eclectic version of the medieval “Faustian bargain,” or ‘deal with the devil’ adapted by Ramuz from an anthology of Russian folktales compiled by Alexander Afansiev. The main character, a soldier home from war, trades his prized violin for magic book that predicts the next day’s market, allowing him to amass incredible wealth. This comes at a price, however, first the soldier’s friends and family and then his betrothed, when after winning his violin back from the devil he is tempted to grasp both his past and present fortunes. The narrator concludes, “No one can have it all; That is forbidden. You must learn to choose between.”

Domingo Estrada Jr., Soldier
