5.0 out of 5 stars Breathing Life and Light into a Trusty Warhorse October 2, 2012
Kristjan Järvi carries the genes for solid musicality shared with his famous father and brother but he adds something different to his concerts and recordings and no where is that more evident than in this lively, nuanced reading of the Orff Carmina Burana. With so many fine recordings of this popular work available one wonders why he elected to enter the competition. But then just listen to how he makes every phrase breathe and adds substance to the lighter passages of this massive work. It glows with fine preparation and marks his accepting the lead position with this orchestra - the MDR Sinfonieorchester. Not only does he manage to get solid and lush sounds form this ensemble but he also demands and gets attention to detail of phrasing that many other conductors and orchestras over look.

For this recording he joins forces with the Rundfunkchor and Kinderchor and together they create some of the richest choral sound on records. As has been said, `There can't be many people who don't know at least the massive choral piece "O Fortuna" that opens and closes the Cantiones profanae, the secular songs after medieval manuscripts kept in Benediktbeuern Abbey. Pretty much everyone with an interest in culture will recognize Orff's instrumental sound straight off, dominated as it is by a large percussion section. And no less familiar is the Wheel of Fortune, the medieval miniature that found fame as the cover picture to the score of Carmina Burana: it depicts Fortuna, the capricious goddess of destiny, whose wheel of fate all creatures are at the mercy of, and in which the beginning and end of earthly existence come full circle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Carmina June 24, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a fine production of Carmina Burana, but not outstanding. I wish that the producers would give more information about the production of their recordings, that is, was it done at higher sampling rates than Red Book, microphones used, and microphone placement. This recording has a fine "graininess" to the sound. This results in a less than ideal production despite what fine music the performers, orchestra and conductor are giving you. It is similar to watching a good modern movie at just a little too slow a frame rate, giving it a slight flicker. Reminds me when I was a teen that a home in our new town had 50 cycle electricity and you could detect the flicker of the lights ever so slightly; it would drive you nuts after a while. This is the same with this recording. I give the engineers a D- for their performance and the musicians an A-. For those less picky, it's a good recording, but clearly digital.
