Igor Stravinsky’s music for this theatrical work propels the tale of a soldier who trades his magic violin to the Devil in exchange for knowledge of the future. The piece is a tour de force for the seven instrumentalists and three narrators tasked with bringing the spectacular score to life. Now considered among the most important chamber music opuses of the early 20th century, L’Histoire’s combination of virtuosic instrumental writing and dramatic narration always make its live performance a must-see event!
