Tuesday July 2, 2024 - CARMINA BURANA concert by the Esterelenco choir

The Esterelenco Choir, the Saint Raphaël Fréjus choral association and the Lorgues Choral Ensemble (ECL) are giving three concerts “CARMINA BURANA” by Carl ORFF including the one on July 2 which will take place at the Château de Grimaud.

In 1803, a manuscript was discovered containing some 350 poems undoubtedly written by traveling religious clerics. These texts talk about spring, love, games and wine.
In 1934, the composer Carl ORFF (1895-1982) found an edition in a second-hand bookstore and decided to set a selection of these poems to music.

Passionate about Stravinsky, early music and popular musical traditions, Orff, who is also a great teacher very interested in the virtues of dance,
gives his score an aesthetic steeped in these different influences: both modern and archaic, classic and timeless, possessing a strong rhythmic character and melodic motifs that appear very simple but can be sophisticated.

The original orchestration places great emphasis on percussion.
This cantata has acquired over time a universal popularity which continues, undoubtedly thanks to the contrasts which oppose very dynamic passages to moments of pure poetry where time seems to stand still. Being outside of fashion, Carmina Burana never goes out of fashion.
You will have the opportunity to see a version with two grand pianos, six percussionists, two soloists, one hundred and twenty choristers and the conductor Pascal PONS.

Organized by L’Esterelenco
