“The Soldier’s Tale” was born in the aftermath of two very well-known tragedies in modern society: the 1918 flu pandemic and World War I.

After voluntarily exiling himself to Switzerland, Stravinsky, appalled by the horrors of war and by the rise to power of the Bolsheviks in his native Russia – now unrecognisable to his free spirit, composed “L’histoire du soldat” as a protest against warfare and all forms violent conflict.

Under the baton of Gabriel Bebeșela, accompanied by actor Miklos Bacs, Stravinsky’s music becomes a force of nature.
