The critically-acclaimed Chameleon Arts Ensemble continues its fall chamber music season with “L’Histoire at 100” featuring Igor Stravinsky’s masterpiece, The Soldier’s Tale. Endlessly inventive and thoroughly unique, Stravinsky’s groundbreaking language and revolutionary approach to rhythm changed the course of music history forever. Dance with the Devil and celebrate his Faustian tale of a soldier who sells his violin – and his soul – in exchange for worldly riches. Sharp, sarcastic, and brilliant, L’Histoire du Soldat remains as relevant today as it was 100 years ago. Also on the program are Stravinsky’s rarely-heard Concertino for string quartet; Camille Saint-Saens’ Septet for trumpet, strings, and piano, Op. 65; and Joan Tower’s clever homage to the master, Petroushskates for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano.
