Orff: Carmina Burana for chamber choir, soloists and 2 pianos / Ruiten, Genz

Album Summary

>Orff, Carl : Carmina burana
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Carmina Burana was conceived as part of Orff's musical trilogy, the Trionfi, a musical triptych that also includes the cantata Catulli Carmina and Trionfo di Afrodite. The version performed here, for soloists, mixed choir, children's choir, 2 pianos and 6 percussionists was prepared by Orff's disciple Wilhelm Killmayer in 1956 and authorized by Orff himself. From disaster films to disco songs, Orff's "Carmina Burana" is arguably one of the most popular and recognizable pieces of classical music in the world. This fresh, new approach, performed by the unquestioned master of the contemporary choral arts, Rupert Huber offers an exciting, fresh take on this familiar warhorse.

Gramophone Magazine
The result is most distinctive, most of all because the SWR Vocal Ensemble sings with such knife-edge precision of ensemble and the recording allows every detail to be heard...Not only has [Ruiten] an aptly girlish voice, she attacks the fearsomely exposed high notes...with supreme confidence...Altogether an excellent version of Orff's chamber version.
