Carl Orff: Carmina Burana

A concert for St. Peter's Hospice

Join Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra, the City of Bristol Choir, Bristol Schools Chamber Choir and other singers for a stunning full-scale performance of Carl Orff’s bawdy Carmina Burana. With lyrics from the Middle Ages, expressing earthly desires and a lusty enjoyment of life, and pulsating rhythms, full of passion and excitement, this is music of a primeval nature. The brass fanfare of Shostakovich’s Festive Overture provides a lively opener and Dvořák’s ever-popular Symphony From the New World completes a thoroughly entertaining concert.

Conductors William Goodchild and David Ogden
Soprano Lorna James
Tenor Alun Rhys-Jenkins
Baritone William Dazeley

Dvořák Symphony No. 9 ‘From the New World’
