Our concert on Wednesday September 29th 2021.

It is the well- known popular work by Carl Orff, Carmina Burana and Beethoven’s Fantasy at the Villa Marina.

Carmina Burana

Carl Orff described his 1936 composition, comprising 24 thirteenth century poems as “the celebration of the human spirit through sexual and holistic balance”. The composition appears in numerous films and television commercials. The “O Fortuna” opening and closing is played before the start of “The X Factor” and as entrance theme for the judges. We are pleased to announce that the Mannin Youth Choir will be joining us to sing this exciting work.

Beethoven’s Choral Fantasia Fantasy

This delightful piece features Judith Christian on piano.

Beethoven wrote his “Choral Fantasia” as a finale for a benefit concert in 1808. This was Beethoven’s last public appearance as a concert pianist before deafness terminated his virtuoso career. This 20-minute work in two movements is a real joy to sing: scored for piano, classical orchestra, SATB soloists and chorus.
