G@tto: On SALE in South Sardinia

February 24, 2010

Let's spend some time in good company...

In my mixed bag today, a gem from Igor's music...

The "Soldier's Tale" is a 1918 theatrical
work "to be read, played and danced"
[lu, joué et dansé] set to music by Igor Stravinsky.
L "Histoire du Soldat" was originally written for small ensemble to compensate
for the lack of players due to World War I.
The work was premiered in Lausanne on 28 September 1918, conducted by
Ernest Ansermet.

A Rare look inside the creative process of rehearsals and recording of "Soldier's Tale" in a 1955 film
presented by Columbia records.

* "A Soldier's Tale" lyrics.

Hi G@tto! Sorry for another long absence, but after a busy start of the year I decided to make a break during the Carnival week, anticipating new hard weeks ahead!!

Great company, indeed!! I love all of Igor's compositions...
