About

L’Histoire du Soldat, premiered in September 1918, pays tribute to all those who died in a war that was drawing to an end. The soldier wagers his soul and his fiddle, which will not save him. The Devil always wins. Inspired by the fine text by Ramuz, Stravinsky’s music evokes parades, the circus, jazz… Three peerless storytellers - Denis Podalydès, Didier Sandre, Michel Vuillermoz - and seven instrumentalists; they too play as if their life depended on it, instilling this recording with an energy as expressive as it is Mephistophelean.
