Lori Laitman: UNSUNG (BSO Centennial Celebration Commission, World Premiere)* Stravinsky: Symphony in Three Movements Orff: Carmina Burana

Soaring and gorgeous, earthy and bawdy, the epicCarmina Burana celebrates the ephemeral nature of life, the joys of spring, drinking, gambling, gluttony and lust - and also their cost. Filled with driving rhythmic changes and harmonies, its inventive, percussive score beckons to our primitive nature. It's paired with Stravinsky's first major work written in the US, inspired by his response to World War II. Stormy and edgy, it captures just how in touch Stravinsky was with the mood of a world emerging from the trauma of war.
