“The sounds of primitive magic”: Orff’s “Carmina Burana”

June 6 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

To determine the final work of our season finale, the members of the Philharmonic were given several major works on which to vote. The winner: Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana”, surely the best-known and -loved choral work of the 20th century. The orchestra is joined by a trio of powerful soloists — soprano Linda Tsatsanis, countertenor José Luis Muñoz, and baritone Erich Parce — as well as two of the regions’s finest choral ensembles: the Seattle Symphony Chorale and the Northwest Boychoir (both under the direction of Joseph Crnko). Adding to the luster of the program is the local debut of eminent violinst Joanna Kurkowicz, the leading exponent of the violin music of Grażyna Bacewicz (1909-1969), whose Violin Concerto No. 4 will round out the season’s lineup of U. S. premieres.
