FLEFF Concert - CARMINA BURANA - TONIGHT!

04/02/2013

Contributed by Karen Rodriguez

Carmina Burana (Carl Orff, Germany, 1936)

Mobilities:  The Forces of People, Passions, Environments

Tuesday April 2, 2013 * 8:15 p.m. * Hockett Recital Hall

Free and Open to the Public

A combustible cantata combining Medieval, Baroque, and 20th century musical styles,  Carmina Burana draws  on bawdy, satirical 13th century secular poems about cavorting, criticizing, drinking, dancing, fate, fortune, gluttony, gaming, love, lust, mockery, moxy, nature, nomads, passion, protest, thinking.

Drawing on pianos as the foundation for the original opulent, epic  work for singers and chorale, this two-piano, multi-instrumental  mobile  version  of Carmina Burana sharpens the rhythmic, color, and structural processes in the score, inviting us to listen with new ears.
