Music. Art. Performance Festival. Stravinski’s “L’Histoire Du Soldat” (conductor Yalchin Adigozalov).

Stravinsky wrote the “Histoire du Soldat” in Switzerland in times of poverty and starvation when the World War 1 broke out in 1917. 
Since the whole idea was to make some money in villages, Stravinsky couldn’t write a ballet or an opera. He had to write on a small scale.
Nevertheless, L’histoire du soldat remains one of Stravinsky’s best-loved pieces, whether performed as a drama, a concert suite, or a trio. 
And this time in Baku at the MAP Festival in Yarat it was a mix of the Shadow play (theatre), ballet, a small septet concert directed by Yalchin Adigozalov with the storyteller accompanying the play from beginning to end.
