Symphony Orchestra and choir close classical phase with Carmina Burana

With 420 Members, the Symphony Orchestra and the choir of students of the 34th Workshop Curitiba music make this Saturday (16), at the Teatro Guaíra, the closing concert of classical stage. The expectation is a grandiose spectacle, Since the work chosen for this edition is "Carmina Burana", the famous version of Carl Orff, considered one of the most important choral works and instrumental of the century 20.

The two groups, formed by students of singing and of various orchestral instruments, they will be under the overall command of the Regents Claudio Cruz and Mara Fields. The show will feature the participation of the singers soloists: Marília Vargas (soprano), Jabez Lima (countertenor) and Erick Eduardo (baritone).

"Carmina Burana" is a choral work based on profane poems written in Latin and medieval German, probably between the centuries 12 and 13, found in a Bavarian monastery, in 1837. The poems are exaltations to the game, to love and to wine, and vitriolic criticism at ecclesiastical authorities, the hypocrisy and the economic power of the time. Lush work with great rhythmic force, Carl Orff presented it for the first time in Germany in 1937, in the middle period of the rise of the Third Reich.
