Notes & Reviews:

A joyful celebration welcoming the New Year, this Gala from Berlin presents the world-renowned Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, in Carl Orff's famous Carmina Burana, an intensely dramatic cantata that remains one of the most widely performed works from the twentieth century. With an exceptional vocal line-up - soprano Sally Matthews, tenor Lawrence Brownlee and baritone Christian Gerhaher - this is an energetic and thrilling performance. Beethoven's Leonore No. 3 overture and Handel's supreme 'Hallelujah' Chorus are also included.
