Orff Carmina Burana

 

Richard Cooke conductor
Robyn Allegra Parton soprano
William Morgan tenor
Edward Grint bass
Richard Pearce, Jonathan Beattie pianos

 

Grainger - Three folk-song arrangements
Britten - The Ballad of Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard
Rachmaninov - Suite for two pianos
Orff – Carmina Burana

 

An original and unique work, Carmina Burana follows the Wheel of Fortune and fate through life, bringing in highly-charged episodes of young love, bawdy life in the tavern, the joys and expectations of spring, submission to love, and the final turn of the Wheel. The Society will perform the work in Carl Orff’s version for two pianos and percussion, together with folk-song arrangements by Percy Grainger, Benjamin Britten’s hauntingly sad Ballad and movements of Rachmaninov’s Suite for two pianos.
