Orff: Carmina Burana Gundula Janowitz, Gerhard Stolze, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Chorus and Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin conducted by Eugen Jochum Sung by world renowned soloists and conducted by the legendary Eugen Jochum, this recording of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana was authorized by the composer himself. It follows, therefore, that the present recording met with the high requirements of the composer himself and so represents an unusual collector's item. Orff intended not just to copy the medieval lyrics but to express the mood of that era. His highly rhythmic compositional style reflects the archaic character of the vocal line. The listener experiences not only the vital primordial pulse of the music in this thrilling interpretation but also the mystery of Fate through the tender lyrical passages. Orff's homage to wine, women and song of the Middle Ages, closely bound up with spring and love, is supported by balanced and precise sound technology. The listener is spirited away to the musical world of Carmina Burana by this recording. Recording: October 1967 at the Ufa Studio, Berlin by Klaus Scheibe / Production: Dr. Hans Hirsch.
