Soldiers' Tales

Event Details

12th February, 2015
The Octagon, Queens' Building, QMUL, E1 4NS
£5 (full), £2 (students)

East London Music Group, directed by Matthew Hardy, together with drama students and music scholars of Queen Mary University of London

Igor Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale is a witty and sardonic Faustian tale of a hapless soldier who meets the devil and foolishly exchanges his fiddle in return for sweet words of untold wealth. The instrumental writing is among the most virtuosic in all chamber music, and this brilliant new ensemble gives its debut performance.

Stravinsky’s great work becomes the inspiration for new ‘tales’ devised by QMUL drama students in collaboration with QMUL Music Scholars which precede Stravinsky’s masterwork
