A programme that moves between religiousness and paganism—from table to altar—of Carmina Burana. As a bonus, a new work by Korean composer Unsuk Chin, master of colours and dreamy textures.
A mix of sacred and profane also characterizes the score of Carmina Burnana, whose famous chorus ‘O Fortuna’ accompanied the horse-riding scenes in the film Excalibur. Atypical, anachronistic and immensely popular, Carl Orff's Cantata is both bawdy and spiritual, celebrating, with the ‘carmen’, the unifying power of music.
Joining this touchstone in the repertoire, a new work by Unsuk Chin, a major figure in music today, draws us into the contemplation of dreamlike worlds.
