Carmina Burana

The version of the masterpiece of the composer Carl Orff that you will hear in Laredo summarizes the 15 choral episodes that form his Carmina Burana, with original accompaniment of two pianos and percussion. The verses are located in a Benedictine monastery of Beuren, a German town of Bavaria, and above all else, in the Latin of the Middle Ages. Orff has written one of the most beautiful and imaginative musical pages combining old styles with the most exciting piano and percussive timbre of the present.

The Carmina Burana are expressions of delight, exaltation of nature, of carnal love, of partying and orgy, at the same time a social critique of civil and ecclesiastic power. It is a playful and scathing vision of the “dark” Middle Ages transmitted across the “Goliardic songs” of the XII Century. Carl Orff achieves with all of this an elemental work full of vigor and life, especially in his original version that today you may hear.
