“O Fortuna!” Carmina Burana’s towering first movement rolls in like thunder, announcing a celebration of spring, the humor of life in the tavern, and the joys and sorrows of love. Although the words were written by medieval monks, Orff’s outrageous cantata is an unstoppable force brimming with decadent debauchery. Under the baton of Maestro Gianandrea Noseda, the Orchestra is joined by two choruses for a symphonic experience sacred and profane.

J. Higdon: blue cathedral

Poulenc: Litanies à la Vierge Noire
