About the recording of The Soldier's Tale:
Recorded at the Vevey Theatre to mark Igor Markevitch's 50 years as a conductor. Markevitch spent all his youth in a small town near Lake Léman: and this recording is a document of an exceptional concert given as part of the 17th Montreux-Vevey Classical Music Festival, in October 1962.
Originally released as a magnificent 33rpm cloth-bound album with an original painting by Jean Cocteau, this recording brings together the latter as narrator alongside Peter Ustinov and Jean-Marie Fertey, with a little instrumental ensemble made up for the occasion by the musicians of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (who regularly played this piece, conducted by its founder Ernest Ansermet) and French musicians like Maurice André on the cornet, Ulysses Delécluse on the clarinet and Manoug Parikian on the violin, all conducted by Markevitch. In this version, The Soldier's Tale returns to its country of origin and the year of its first performance, 1918. Written during the war, while all music had ceased in Switzerland, this work, the result of a collaboration between the composer Stravinsky, the writer Ramuz, the painter Auberjonois, and the performer Ansermet, would tour the country in a caravan, performing in the countryside. Alongside the horrors of war, a serious outbreak of "Spanish Flu" decimated Europe and saw the caravan taken off the road. But the The Soldier's Tale would go on to tour the world. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Album Description

About the recording of The Soldier's Tale:
Recorded at the Vevey Theatre to mark Igor Markevitch's 50 years as a conductor. Markevitch spent all his youth in a small town near Lake Léman: and this recording is a document of an exceptional concert given as part of the 17th Montreux-Vevey Classical Music Festival, in October 1962.
Originally released as a magnificent 33rpm cloth-bound album with an original painting by Jean Cocteau, this recording brings together the latter as narrator alongside Peter Ustinov and Jean-Marie Fertey, with a little instrumental ensemble made up for the occasion by the musicians of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (who regularly played this piece, conducted by its founder Ernest Ansermet) and French musicians like Maurice André on the cornet, Ulysses Delécluse on the clarinet and Manoug Parikian on the violin, all conducted by Markevitch. In this version, The Soldier's Tale returns to its country of origin and the year of its first performance, 1918. Written during the war, while all music had ceased in Switzerland, this work, the result of a collaboration between the composer Stravinsky, the writer Ramuz, the painter Auberjonois, and the performer Ansermet, would tour the country in a caravan, performing in the countryside. Alongside the horrors of war, a serious outbreak of "Spanish Flu" decimated Europe and saw the caravan taken off the road. But the The Soldier's Tale would go on to tour the world. © François Hudry/Qobuz

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
