Roger Waters - The Soldier's Tale by Igor Stravinsky

Rock legend Roger Waters has adapted the narration and recorded Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale – he narrates the whole of this harrowing modern fairy tale himself. When the Devil and the Soldier argue towards the end of the opening section of Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, the eavesdropper may well feel a very real sense of fear. Roger Waters articulates this violent dispute with so much energy and cold fury, building from climax to climax and thrillingly working himself up into such a rage, that we suddenly sympathize with the drama of the ordinary man who wants too much and who risks too much. In short, this rock star is an outstanding narrator – the founder of Pink Floyd speaks all three roles in Stravinsky’s piece of music theatre: the Soldier, the Devil and the Narrator.
