Curtis on Tour - L'Histoire du Soldat

A thrilling tale of trickery and magic, Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale) comes to life through an ensemble of musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music.

The program, designed for audiences in North America, also features works by Penderecki, Poulenc, and Curtis alumnus Viet Cuong.

Repertoire includes
(subject to change):
Well-Groomed for solo snare drum Viet Cuong (b. 1990)
Sonata for clarinet and bassoon, FP 32a Francis Poulenc (1899–1963)
Duo Concertante for violin and double bass Krzysztof Penderecki (1933–2020)
Commissioned Work for Curtis on Tour – Title TBD Nicholas DiBerardino (b. 1989)
L’Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale) Igor Stravinsky (1882­–1971)

Curtis performers team up with beloved actor and narrator John de Lancie, who voices the characters, award-winning performer David Shifrin (clarinet ’71) and prominent recitalist Soovin Kim (violin ’99).

Curtis on Tour is the Nina von Maltzahn global touring initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music. Grounded in the school’s “learn by doing” philosophy, tours feature extraordinary emerging artists alongside celebrated alumni and faculty. In addition to performances, musicians offer master classes, educational programs, and community engagement activities while on tour.

Curtis on Tour also manages solo engagements for Curtis artists with professional orchestras and presenters. Since the program was established in 2008, Curtis on Tour ensembles have performed more than 375 concerts in over 100 cities in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
