This live recording of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana was made at the Southbank Centre's 2013 The Rest Is Noise Festival in London, a concert series celebrating critic Alex Ross' book The Rest Is Noise. Always a crowd-pleaser, Orff's secular cantata is full of rhythmic choruses, rollicking dances, and incantatory songs based on medieval texts, and it has become one of the most popular modern works in the choral repertoire. The performance by the London Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra, conducted by Hans Graf, is energetic and vivid, and the solos by soprano Sarah Tynan, tenor Andrew Kennedy, and baritone Rodion Pogossov are full of life and feeling.
