A Soldier’s Tale, A Fiddler’s Tale – Evanston

June 2, 2019 • 3:00 pm

“No one can have it all, that is forbidden. You must learn to choose between.”
-Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz
 
The season finale revisits Rembrandt’s acclaimed 2012 pairing of Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du soldat with A Fiddler’s Tale by Wynton Marsalis. Based on the Russian folk tale The Runaway Soldier and the Devil, L’Histoire tells the story of a soldier who sells his fiddle to the devil in exchange for material wealth, losing his fiancée and musical abilities in the process. Inspired by Stravinsky’s L’Histoire, A Fiddler’s Tale is a jazz suite that narrates the cautionary tale of a young female violinist who is lured into performing more commercialized music by the devil, a record executive with the initials B.Z.B. Rembrandt will be joined by Chicago-based comedian, author, and public radio personality Aaron Freeman for this special performance.
