Carl Orff’s »Carmina Burana« is a perennial favourite on stages throughout the world. According to the work’s publishers, »Carmina« was the past century’s most performed classical composition. This may have seemed unlikely when Orff set a collection of medieval texts in the long dead languages Latin, Middle High German and Old French to music in 1935. But – O Fortuna! With the Goddess of Fate’s Wheel of Fortune, sung in an impressive chorus at the beginning and end of »Carmina«, Orff has set an unprecedented worldwide success in motion. The Munich Symphony Orchestra is supported by the voices of the Munich Bach Choir as well as renowned soloists. The evening begins with Modest Mussorgsky’s equally stirring »Night on Bald Mountain«.
