Masterfully arranged for piano duet; these excerpts from Carmina Burana maintain the spirit of the original work.Carmina Burana; first performed in 1937; is based on an important collection of thirteenth-century poems found in the monastery of Benediktbeuren.Carl Orff made selections from this collection and in robust and delicate musical colors painted a manifold picture of life.“Everything I have written up to now; and which you have unfortunately printed; you can shred into pulp. My collected works begin with 'Carmina Burana'.” Carl Orff wrote to his publisher after the premiere. And so it was that his work caused a sensation in the whole world and continues to delight people of all cultures. The 'Carmina Burana' are written for solo singers; chorus and orchestra.
