Sebastián Pou (violin) / Philip Dawson (double bass) / Sílvia Insa (clarinet) / Josep Tatay (bassoon) / Cyril Pouillet (cornet) / Jean Cristophe Brunet (trombone) / Juan Carlos Murgui (percussion)
Stravinsky generated a whole series of orchestral innovations that marked the evolution of the trends that would become daily after the Second World War. It would make an incipient avant-garde something common. History of a soldier is a clear exponent, where strangely unite a whole series of instruments impossible to principles of the s. XX. It is in this decade that the young Miró receives influences from the avant-gardes in Paris and Barcelona, which began to be denoted in the paintings painted during his stays in Mont-Roig, as can be seen in the painting Paisatge de Mont-Roig in the room 3 of Es Baluard.
