The Philadelphia Orchestra: Carmina burana

Date/Time

Feb 14, 2013 to Feb 16, 2013

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

Orff’s raucous retelling of 24 medieval poems praises springtime, love, lust, and fortune. It requires a huge orchestra and a chorus singing a mix of old languages. The riveting choral refrains of “O Fortuna” open and close Carmina burana. While many sections of this iconic work have been re-used in movies and commercials, nothing equals the power when you hear this live, in its entirety.
