Carl Orff’s rousing Carmina Burana blends secular medieval texts with seductive melodies and spellbinding rhythms to create an unforgettable concert. Witold Lutoslawski, Poland’s most celebrated composer of the last century, traced his musical roots to Debussy and Stravinsky.
These influences are heard in his evocative 1963 work, Three Poems by Henri Michaux, featuring the National Philharmonic Chorale in a stirring Washington-area premiere.
