Everything I have written to date, and which you have, unfortunately, published, can be destroyed. With Carmina Burana my collected works begin.
What a way to open our concert season. Three extraordinary pieces of music by three very different composers.
Carl Orff: Carmina Burana
Carmina Burana, such a joy to sing and so familiar (do we detect a hint of Old Spice?). Orff’s inspiration came from a selection of early 13th century English texts called ‘Wine, Women & Song’. We say no more.
Leonard Bernstein: Chichester Psalms
Bernstein asked why so many of us try to explain the beauty of music, thereby depriving it of its mystery? Yet beautiful this certainly is. Hopeful, life-affirming and springing from a crisis of faith, Chichester Psalms has a jazzy contemporary feel – only to be expected from the composer of West Side Story.
Johannes Brahms: Liebeslieder Walzer
Finally we have Brahms in romantic mood, soaking up the music of gypsy bands and bewitching us with a roving eye, desperate longing and unrequited love. Written for piano and four hands. Gorgeous.
