School of Music: A Soldier's Tale

Michael Votta leads the U.S. Army Field Band and Soldiers' Chorus, along with members of UMD Chamber Singers, in an all-Stravinsky program featuring L'Histoire du Soldat (A Soldier's Tale). A work the composer said should be "read, played, and danced," A Soldier's Tale uses three actors to tell the story of a soldier who trades his fiddle to the devil for a book that predicts the future of the economy. Also on the program: Mass, one of Stravinsky's only works written without a commission. Stravinsky scholars have speculated that this work, an austere 19-minute setting of the Roman Catholic Mass, was the product of "a spiritual necessity." {Will appear in FYI on Sep 21, 2012
