Deauville Easter Festival

Pierre Dumoussaud conducts Mahler, Schnittke, Berg, and Stravinsky — With Adèle Charvet and the Soloists of the Atelier de Musique Deauville Easter Festival

About

Stranded in Switzerland due to the events of the First World War and the October Revolution in Russia, Stravinsky was introduced to the Swiss novelist Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz in 1915 by their mutual friend and conductor Ernest Ansermet. This encounter would ultimately lead to a creative partnership that brought forth one of the most important works of the 20th century: L’Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale). Based on a Russian folk tale, L’Histoire du Soldat unites a Faustian fable with Stravinsky’s colourful and sweeping composition that includes elements of jazz and Russian folk music.
