The Academy—a program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute in partnership with the New York City Department of Education

Weill Recital Hall
Stravinsky’s Histoire du Soldat is a Faustian story of a soldier who trades his fiddle with the Devil in exchange for a magic book. The work contains some of Stravinsky’s most colorful music and is a piece where tango, waltz, and ragtime rub elbows with Lutheran chorales. Ensemble ACJW—called “fun, fearless, and effing great,” by Time Out New York—performs this devilishly entertaining work in the finale to its Carnegie Hall series.
