CSO Sessions Episode 7: Stravinsky The Soldier's Tale
During the First World War, Stravinsky conceived of this singular piece inspired by Russian tales of a soldier who tricks the devil into drinking too much vodka. Using just seven players and an actor, Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale displayed a sonority new to music, with its accents of military marching bands and ragtime.
