About us

Gareth Brynmor John baritone
Nicky Losseff, Mark Hutchinson pianos
Peter Seymour conductor
Orff Carmina Burana
Lambert The Rio Grande

Carmina Burana has enjoyed enormous popularity ever since its premiere in 1937, particularly in this arrangement for two pianos and six percussionists. The medieval texts, and Orff’s music, focus on the cycle of the turning wheel of fortune, dancing via the tavern, much gluttony and the Court of Love on the way. We are delighted to welcome Gareth Brynmor John, winner of the 2013 Kathleen Ferrier Award, in the demanding baritone role. Constant Lambert’s setting of a poem by Sacheverell Sitwell combines jazz, ragtime and Brazilian influences with a traditional English choral sound and revels in the composer’s fascination with the exotic.
