Après L’Histoire
Après L’Histoire
The Chicago-based project Après L’Histoire takes Igor Stravinsky’s 1918 composition L’Histoire du soldat (“The Soldier’s Tale,” with text by C.F. Ramuz) as its starting point, championing the continued vitality of its words and music with interpretations and newly commissioned works for the same performers. Co-directors Chris Wild (conductor) and Jenna Lyle (actor, soprano) are experienced interpreters and performers of various musical styles and interdisciplinary practices. The project’s nine performers are all current or recent students of Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music, and have held memberships in Ensemble Dal Niente, mocrep, Parlour Tapes+, Zafa Collective, F-PLUS, Civic Orchestra of Chicago, and the Peninsula Music Festival. The ensemble’s recent and upcoming performances have been presented by Constellation’s Frequency Series (June, 2018), The Poetry Foundation (October, 2017), The Arts Club of Chicago (May, 2017), and Northwestern University (May, 2017).
