The FSO season finale ends with works by Schiff, Gershwin and Orff.
Inspired by the “Infernal Dance” of Stravinsky’s Firebird, American composer David Schiff turns Stravinsky’s famous work and infuses it with elements of jazz and rock. To end the first half, Dean Shelly Berg joins Maestro Schwarz and the FSO in Gershwin’s iconic “Rhapsody in Blue.” The season finale concludes with Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, a tour de force that features Frost soloists, choirs, and our full orchestra.
Carmina Burana, is a cantata that premiered in 1937 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Discovered in 1803 at a Bavarian monastery, the texts are drawn from a 13th-century surviving manuscript that includes songs and plays written in both medieval German and Latin. The texts present different aspects of medieval life, including social aspects, religious verses, and old drinking songs.
David Schiff: Infernal
George Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
Carl Orff: Carmina Burana
