Scritto appena dopo la prima guerra mondiale, agli inizi dell’era jazz, L’Histoire du Soldat riprende la storia del giovane violinista, Joseph, ora un soldato stanco e deluso.  In libera uscita per trovare la madre e la fidanzata, si trova davanti ad un dilemma: sacrificare il suo violino per la sicurezza economica, attorcigliando la sua anima nella ricerca costante del possedere di  più.
