PROGRAMME

Orff, Carmina Burana

Symphonic repertoire has always been one of the best ways to value the quality of an opera orchestra once outside the orchestra pit. With this inspiration, the Music Director of the Orchestra of the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Josep Pons, has always defended that an opera orchestra should prove itself sufficiently flexible in order to be able to tackle other repertoire. In this case, a mysterious and most unique work, Carmina Burana, one of the classical pieces that most definitely catches the imagination of the music loving public, thanks to great classical versions as well as use by non-classical music culture (jazz, pop, rock, hip-hop and movie soundtracks such as Excalibur). Wild, direct and commanding, it is music that fills us with enthusiasm as it speaks of drinking as if there were no tomorrow but, at the same time, reflects anguished considerations on our own mortality. Inspired by a compilation of medieval poems of the 13th Century, Carl Orff created one of the most immortal compositions of the 20th Century that deals with our emotions and is sung by voices stretched to the very limit, an orchestra playing feverish rhythms and a most frenzied percussion. Indisputably unforgettable music.
