Orff: Carmina Burana
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra & Chorus
Marin Alsop’s pacing of the opening ‘O Fortuna’ chorus is spot on… Diction is excellent… Tenor Tom Randle… is the pick of the soloists. Soprano Claire Rutter makes worthy contributions… Conductor Alsop is a constantly energising presence. Rough edges notwithstanding, this is a lusty and in many ways extremely appealing version of Orff’s popular classic.
