Encourage an appreciation for classical music with this CD by Maestro Classics.
The Soldier’s Tale (L’Histoire du soldat) is Stravinsky’s greatest work for narrator and orchestra. It is the story of a soldier, on leave from the army, who trades his old violin for a magic book that can tell the future and make him rich. He soon discovers, however, that he has made a deal with the devil and that money does not bring happiness.
Featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Grammy nominated conductor Stephen Simon, Narrator Yadu and a guest appearance by the Amazing Baz, there is no better way to introduce children to one of the worlds most famous and influential composers.
The enclosed 24-page activity book contains a biography of Stravinsky, The Soldier’s Tale story with illustrations by Brigitta Sif and more!
