Fantástica interpretaión de La Historia del Soldado por Igor Markevich.

Jean Cocteau - Jean Marie Fertey

peter Ustinov - Anne Tonietti

Igor Markevich, director

Grabado en octubre de 1962 en el Théâtre Vevey

Francisco Camino recomienda esta versión y dice: Obra difícil de clasificar, una de las primeras de acuerdo con la nueva estética neoclásica, concebida para la escena, con un narrador, actores que puedan actuar o cantar, o hacer ambas cosas a la vez, una bailarina que puede bailar o limitarse al mimo, siete instrumentalistas... Markevich, amigo de Stravinsky, como Cocteau, se mantiene fiel a la línea marcada por el compositor: precisión, tempi contrastados, ritmos rigurosamente marcados, ausencia total de énfasis expresivo, y con tal sequedad, no faltan ironía y lirismo.

Reedición en 180 gr de Speakers Corner

The creation of Histoire du Soldat is closely connected with actual incidents during the war. Because the local theatre was closed in 1918, the last year of the war, Stravinsky and the Swiss writer Charles Ferdinand Ramuz decided to create a work that did not demand a large venue or big audience to be effective. The result was a theatrical work for a small ensemble consisting of a narrator, two actors, a dancer and seven musicians. On a par with the sparsity of the resources is the tightly knit construction of the work in which the scenes and musical sections are strung together like a suite. Just as in his ballets, Stravinsky relies on the dance-like energy of his music, which not only includes various march rhythms but also the tango, waltz and ragtime. The spoken word is also brimful of rhythmic vitality and is impressively rendered by the enormously adaptable voices of Jean Cocteau as the Narrator and Peter Ustinov as the Devil. Igor Markevitch urges on the excellent musicians in his little orchestra with élan and accuracy, with the young Maurice André’s brilliantly performed trumpet part being particularly conspicuous.
It is pointless to look for a recording that is remotely as good as this one. It doesn’t exist!
