The Soldier's Tale(L'histoire du soldat) is Stravinsky's greatest work for narrator and orchestra. It is the story of a soldier on leave from the army who trades his old violin for a magic book that can tell the future and make him rich. He soon discovers, however, that he has made a deal with the devil and that money does not bring happiness.
