More about Carmina Burana

This grandiose music conquered the world following the original performance in Germany in 1936. Carl Orff realised that he, with Carmina Burana (“songs of Beuern”) had created something exceptional, and stated laconically: “Everything I have written to date can be destroyed. With Carmina Burana, my collected works begin.”

These medieval texts about the trials and joys of life – gambling, love, food and drink – were found in a collection in the monastery of Beuern in Switzerland.

Carl Orff was fascinated by the meaty and passionate folklore poems, and created music that was as suggestive, direct and powerful – music that shakes you up as well as moves your heart. So come on down to the pub, see the lust and love of the infatuated, hear the song of the roasting swan, and take a gamble with Lady Luck!
