4.0 out of 5 stars incomplete January 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD
It should be noted that this does not contain the complete Catulli Carmina, as both works will not fit on one disc. The prelude and postlude have been omitted, about 15 minutes total. The complete Ormandy recording of Catulli Carmina is a bit rare, but you can find both on a 2-disc 2004 release here: Orff: Carmina Burana / Catulli Carmina

This is a classic recording of Carmina Burana, and still the best, to my ears, of the many I've sampled. The shortcomings I find in other recordings are usually poor choral rhythm and odd, groove-killing rubatos along with misjudged tempos. As other reviewers here have mentioned, the tempos, pacing, and dynamics are excellent, along with the soloists. The 'amateurish' (as another reviewer describes it; perhaps 'less-refined' would be a more accurate term) sound of the choir is actually quite appropriate for the subject matter of the texts (these are not sacred texts), and works well with the overall character of the music. If you prefer a darker and more 'old-world' style performance of this work that treats it a bit more like German opera, you might check out the Jochum-conducted recording (which I've never warmed to but is considered by many to be 'definitive'), among others. Listen to the samples and make up your own mind. One last point - many, many recordings of this work by names big and small have come and gone over the years, but this one, to my knowledge, has been continually in print, so at the least one should not dismiss it lightly.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unforgettable Musical Feast March 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Camina Barana

Resurrected by Karl Orff, from the caves of a Monastery in Germany, the manuscripts of a large collection of Georgian Chants were put together, re-scored into the beautiful suite represented here.

Under Eugene Normandy, there is nothing quite like it in all of music. It is music directly from the Middle Ages that touches the soul in deep unexpected ways and in unexpected areas. Although Camina Barana is in the same class as Handel's Messiah, in my estimation it is better, richer; oddly even more modern: The mixture of choral and symphonic counterpoint and musical motifs is always not just interesting but hauntingly surprising. But more than this, the music has an urgency about it that is post-Modern, relentless, taunting, agitating and compelling. It grabs the aesthetic nerves by the throat and holds on through all of the arias and symphonic explosions as if for dear life.

The suite is often performed during the Christmas holidays for some unknown reasons - maybe it's the sentimentality. On several occasions we have seen it performed in local churches. We saw it performed on stage at the National Theater in Washington, D.C. last year and it was a singularly unforgettable experience. Music rarely gets better than this and this version is the best I have heard. Five Stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasic recording! February 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Eugene Ormandy Has always inpressed, and I have many of his recordings of Him and the Philadelphia Orchestra, and this one does not disapoint in the least. Excellent choral sound, and the Orchestra displays its ever present "Ommph" under Ormandy's direction. Turn the volume way up, and enjoy!
