The Soldier's Tale
Approximate running time: 1h 45m with one intermission

The Boulez Ensemble and Zubin Mehta close the 2021–22 season with a program contrasting the classicism of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with the neoclassicism of Igor Stravinsky. Known as “Gran Partita,” Mozart’s Serenade for 12 winds and double bass, written in 1781, not only is one of the composer’s most celebrated chamber music works, but also one of his most substantial, with a performance time of approximately 50 minutes. Stravinsky composed The Soldier’s Tale in 1917 for a traveling theater troupe in Switzerland on a text by Charles Ferdinand Ramuz. “To be read, played, and danced,” as the score indicates, the piece tells of a soldier who strikes a deal with the devil. At the Pierre Boulez Saal, it will be performed in a concert format with an actor taking on the role of narrator.
