內容簡介

Recorded in 1997, this jewel of Naïve Classique
catalogue has been unavailable for several
years. As the work is performed at Paris Opéra
Comique in April 2014, Naïve is happy to reissue
that title featuring prestigious actors and
musicians.

The project for Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale)
came about in a difficult economic context. The means of
the two creators were dwindling at an alarming rate: Diaghilev’s
Ballets were no longer touring, due to the war, and
the Russian revolution had deprived Stravinsky of his remaining
savings. As for Ramuz, some of whose works had
been published in France, he was no longer receiving his
royalties. Thus, after the creation of Renard and the beginnings
of Les Noces, the two friends wondered “Why not
write something together which would entail only a limited
number of instruments and two or three characters?”
Thus did Histoire du soldat come into being. Its musical
forces were limited: deciding against the piano, the composer
opted for an ensemble of seven instruments representing
all the sections of the orchestra with their highest
and lowest elements (strings: violin and double bass;
winds: clarinet and bassoon; brass: cornet and trombone),
plus a highly developed percussion part. Work progressed
quickly in spite of numerous organizational difficulties. The
first performance brought together friends and well-known
artists: Ernest Ansermet conducted, René Auberjonois designed
the sets and costumes, Georges Pitoëff and his wife
Ludmilla played the parts of the Devil and the Princess, Elie
Gagnebin was the reader, and Gabriel Rosset, a member of
the student association, played the Soldier.
Initially, their grand project included touring with a portable
stage, like the itinerant players of the Middle Ages.
But the devastating Spanish influenza epidemic and the
armistice of November 1918 put an end to that idea.
Nonetheless, Histoire du soldat would later be performed
regularly, featuring famous names: Jean Cocteau in the role
of the reader (Geneva, 1934), François Simon, son of the
great French actor Michel, in the role of the Soldier at the
Théâtre des Champs Élysées (Paris, 1946)…
