carmina logoBased on medieval Latin poems, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is one of the best-known cantatas of the 20th century and has become as popular among concertgoers as Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. The theme “O Fortuna” has been used in many commercials and movie soundtracks. Orff combines a multitude of musical styles from Gregorian chant to the rhythmic complexity found in Stravinsky. The hourlong work for large orchestra, three solo singers, and chorus is divided into three sections, “Springtime,” “In the Tavern,” and “The Court of Love.”
