La Creation du Monde
La Creation du Monde - MildaudL'Historie du Soldat - Stravinsky
From the back cover: Briefly, the action of La Creation du Monde is a danced interpretation of the creation of all living things beings. From out of the dark, mass of dancers emerge, one by one, trees and animals, progressing from the lowest forms of life to the highest, Man and Woman, who conclude the work with a climatic kiss of fertility. Mihaud's music accompanies this action on a relatively subdued plane, but the spirit of jazz, particularly the blues, is ever present.
