The Bergen Philharmonic Youth Orchestra offers a rare chance to hear one of the most iconic large-scale orchestral-choral works of the twentieth century.

In 1935, German composer Carl Orff encountered a vivid set of poems charting the outlandish pursuits of hedonistic students and monks, the medieval 'golliards.' The texts, by the golliards themselves, captivated the composer.

They soon found a home in the ritualistic, Stravinsky-influenced style Orff had been developing. It was a style full of motoric patterns, driving energy, percussive thwacks and vivid colours. But alongside its imposing shapes rhythms, Carmina Burana has haunting tenderness and real humour too. Kjell Seim conducts some of the most talented young instrumentalists and singers from the Bergen municipality in this special concert.
