Notes & Reviews:
No other 20th century work delights music-lovers as much as Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana". The opening number, "Oh Fortuna", is a huge classical hit in its own right. The recording conducted by Austrian shooting star Franz Welser-Möst brings out the thrilling drama of the whole score.Notes & Reviews:
