Carmina Burana, by Karl Orff…..WHERE BEAUTY BLENDS WITH THE BAZAAR
Some years ago I was in audience of a production of Camina Burana similar to the following. I was quite familiar with the composition and its enemies from many cloaks.
Fortunately, I was forced into listening to Western Classical music, led by Beethovem, at a very young age. My ears have never before or since, been more profoundly perked by a musical performance, than that production of Carmina Burana!
Warning: Beauty causes inspiration! Spectacular noises which usually emit from the highest levels of classical music are HABIT FORMING! Listen at your own risk, for we live in an era where BEAUTY, CREATED BY THE HUMAN MALE, HAS BEEN MADE TO DISAPPEAR! The more one listens, the more one craves.
Thanks to my Mother, such music has been my drug of choice since I was seven, seventy five years ago.
If you have time, take the opportunity to be overwhelmed by some emotional Beethoven following Carmina Burana.
