The Carmina Burana – cycle of anonymous poems found in Benedictine Abbey in Bavaria – constitute a typical collection of joyful songs by medieval goliards, monks removed from Benedictine abbeys. From this collection, was formed five contrasting groups of poetry: the triumph of fortune, a spring scene, dances in the meadow, a scene in the tavern and a concluding cut of love.

We will have the opportunity to enjoy this great masterpiece once more on this occasion performed by the OCNE (Orquesta y Coro Nacionales de España) ) in a two piano version and the percussion section of the National Orchestra, under the direction of David Afkham.

Those who had the chance to attend the excellent performance of Mozart´s Requiem by the same choir a few days ago, will agree with me that this is another concert not to be missed.
