Carl Orff: Carmina Burana

Concert for St Peter's Hospice


Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra,City of Bristol Choir and other singers for a stunning full-scale performance of Carl Orff's bawdy Carmina Burana. With lyrics from the Middle Ages expressing a lusty enjoyment of early desires,Carmina Burana is a passionate and highly dramatic work written for massive choral and orchestral forces. The brass fanfare of Shostakovich's Festive Overture opens the concert followed by Dvořák's ever-popularSymphony from the New World.
