This 15-track release is based on the concept of the stories of soldiers. Two works are
featured: Igor Stravinsky’s Suite from Histoire du Soldat, and Robert Kurka’s The
Good Soldier Schweik Suite. Stravinsky’s Histoire du Soldat is a theatrical work that
tells the story of Joseph, a Russian soldier. In Kurka’s work, set during World War I,
the soldier Schweik is arrested, then sent to an insane asylum, then sent to the front
lines of the army. Performed by the American Chamber Winds, these Suites are
excellent additions to any collection.
Total Time: 1 hour
