Mansfield Symphony Orchestra: Carmina Burana
Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 8:00 PM
May 15, 2021 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
The Mansfield Symphony Orchestra and Chorus perform a season finale with two thrilling works! In a letter to his former teacher, Ferdinand Hiller, Max Bruch wrote, “My violin concerto is progressing slowly – I do not feel sure of my feet on this terrain. Do you think that it is very audacious to write a violin concerto?” The concerto may have progressed slowly, taking over four years to complete, but the result is breath-taking and the work is considered a masterpiece in the violin repertoire.
On the second half of the program, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana needs no introduction – the famous section called “O Fortuna” was first introduced to mainstream media in 1981 in the John Boorman film, Excalibur. Since then you can hear it in other movies such as Glory (1989), The Hunt for Red October (1990), The Doors (1991), Natural Born Killers (1994), The General’s Daughter (1999), Detroit Rock City (1999), Jackass: The Movie (2002), Cheaper by the Dozen (2003), and even G-Force (2009).
What’s on the Program
Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor and featuring concertmaster, Victor Beyens.
