On 22 April, 2021, in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, the Moscow State Academic Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Pavel Kogan, as part of the Philharmonic subscription No. 88 “Masterpieces of World Choral Music”, will present to the audience a concert with the performance of the great cantata-oratorio masterpiece by K. Orff. The legendary cantata "Carmina Burana" - the most famous work of the German composer of the XXth century Karl Orff. Written in 1937, the cantata still amazes listeners with its monumentality (both in the huge orchestra instrumentation and in duration) and, at the same time, by its artistic democratism, surprisingly combining the “seriousness” of the academic genre and its bright super-vivid presentation.
Conductor - Vladimir Ponkin. The State Academic Choir of Russia named after A. A. Yurlov (music director and chief conductor - Gennady Dmitryak) will also take part in the concert.
