Ades, Barry, Britten, Stravinsky

Live from Milton Court, London

Presented by Martin Handley
In the Milton Court Alumni Recital series, London's newest concert hall welcomes four distinguished former students of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama to perform music by one of their number - composer Thomas Adès - alongside works by Gerald Barry, Benjamin Britten and Igor Stravinsky. At the heart of the programme, the suite which Stravinsky made from his theatre-piece 'The Soldier's Tale' - the story of Joseph, a Russian soldier who sells his fiddle to the devil in return for earthly riches and meets a terrible end.
