L'Histoire du soldat

24 FLAC Discount

Faust at war 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.

Faust à la guerre Créée en septembre 1918, l'Histoire du soldat rend hommage à tous les disparus d'une guerre qui s'achève. Le soldat parie sur son âme et son violon qui ne le sauvera pas. Le diable gagne toujours. Inspirée par le beau texte de Ramuz, la musique de Stravinsky évoque la parade, le cirque, le jazz... Trois conteurs hors pair – Denis Podalydès, Didier Sandre, Michel Vuillermoz – et sept instrumentistes, qui eux aussi jouent leurs âmes, insufflent à cet enregistrement une énergie aussi expressive que méphistophélique.
