Carl Orff: Carmina Burana / Madchenchor Hannover

Album Summary

>Orff, Carl : Carmina burana
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

No other famous composition left behind traditional sound ideals as radically as Orff's Carmina Burana, which debuted in 1937. This unique production brings together the Hanover Girls Choir and Boys Choir. Experience the Choirs' self-assured poise and vividly glowing enthusiasm and the orchestra's boundless energy. Hear the shattering might of the opening and closing chorus, the hymn to Fortuna, with its unwieldy and cumbersome fourths and fifths in the vocal parts and constant repetitions. Discover force and crudeness of the middle-ages erupting, while later tenderness and mildness are brilliantly depicted by the transparent voices of the boy sopranos.
