"Sang"all the way home from work..recall first heard students at my HS practicing for a State competition...then at college we played that record and Holst's The Planets till the inner grooves were distorted. Although we didn't go to Philharmonic for this program, we can imagine our favorite musicians in addition to the guest conductor and performers. Wonderful sound. Bravo Nicholas Phan and Jacques Brailo. Thanks!

Isn't it fantastic how superb professionals can bring even more reverb and elan to music for children! Carl Orff hit a home run with his simple ideas. Nothing wrong with "simple" harmony and progressions---repetitions and scales--whole tones even! Plenty of room for the pros to show their stuff. If you can get a good idiomatic translation, the poetry is pretty interesting too (remember it was written by itinerant religious students in the 12th and 13th centuries), pretty bawdy stuff!
