This sound likely to be an intermittently sticking variator control solenoid, getting stuck open causing the engine to stall and die. There was a recall for this with the 147 seles when a batch of faulty solenoids were fitted to production cars. Would recommend you remove the solenoid, check the plunger is free in the oil gallery if not clean and fit another G/S/H solenoid to test- I believe the Bitron solenoids were superior. Set clutch plunger to 3.4v on the potentiometer, ignition on, neutral. If problem remains, remove throttle body clean and reset parameters.
