Sunday 8 November, 3.00pm at Royal Hospital Road, Chelsea, London, SW3 4SR

Classical ClubA theatrical work conceived by Igor Stravinsky and Swiss writer C.F. Ramuz, A Soldier’s Tale is a parable of a soldier who trades his violin to the devil in return for a fortune, later deliberately losing at cards to win it back. But the Devil is not so easily beaten…

Actor Tama Matheson narrates this Faustian story, while rhythms of ragtime, tango, waltz and a march jostle for position in the highly original and positively primal score, performed by an LMP septet of violin, double bass, clarinet, bassoon, cornet/trumpet(?), trombone and percussion. Written at the end of the First World War, The Soldier’s Tale is a lesson for all cultures and times. This Classical Club performance will be broadcast first on Remembrance Sunday from the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and the concert will end with The Last Post. Enjoy the whole 8-concert series online via LMP’s Classical Club, tickets just £12 each or £50 for the full 8-concert series if you book before 31 October (£60 thereafter).
