This is a great interview with Steven Schick and Luis Urrea talking about Stravinsky’s “L’Histoire du Soldat”. I hope there is a recording of the performance. I would love to see the performance with the new text.
From YouTube: “Luis Urrea is a prolific writer who uses his dual-culture life experiences to explore greater themes of love, loss and triumph. Born in Tijuana to a Mexican father and American mother, Urrea is the critically acclaimed, best-selling author of 16 books. He talks with Steven Schick about his life and work, and their collaboration on a new version of Stravinsky’s “L’Histoire du Soldat” with texts from Urrea’s writings. Recorded on 2/1/2018. Series: “Helen Edison Lecture Series”
