Eugen Jochum conducts the Berlin Deutsche Opera Orchestra. This recording brings together a young cast in a performance bristling with energy. The sound is overwhelming in its impact. The secret of the overwhelming success of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana lies in its skillful and apparently simple mixture of archaic rhythms and sounds (derived from the composer’s convictions about what ancient music must have sounded like) with the sort of music that was actually performed at medieval mystery plays. Japanese pressing. Imported.

"Since its original release, Jochum's performance has consistently been a prime recommendation for this much-recorded piece. ... He pays great attention to detail — particularly with regard to tempo and articulation — yet the performance as a whole has a tremendous cogent sweep and the choruses have terrific power." — Gramophone
