The Soldier's Tale: Stravinsky Festival

Igor Stravinsky

There are currently no dates available for this event.

Celebrate the neo-classical legacy of Stravinsky as the Konserthuset pays tribute to the twentieth century's most influential classical composer.

Unusual instrumentation is often a feature of Stravinsky's chamber music, and both the Octet and the Suite from 'The Soldier's Tale' - a subversive and surprisingly jazzy work written as World War One drew to a close - features cornet, bassoon, double bass, and percussion alongside the violin. Trumpet section leader Joakim Agnas' 'Dance Suite' pays due hommage to the influence of the art form on Stravinsky's career.

  • Gringolts Quartet: Beethoven, Haydn, Wennäkoski
