Lust & La Femme Mystique

This two-part celebration of International Women’s Day kicks off with Conductor Laureate Vance George leading three soloists in the sternum-rattling classic, Carmina Burana. When the opera first debuted in 1937, its composer, Carl Orff, declared that his previous works could all be destroyed. Based on a medieval collection of 24 poems, the dramatic composition continues to stir audiences today with its 25 movements, five sections, and unification of powerful voices. The piece begins with one of its most well-known movements, O Fortuna, a powerfully theatrical cantata whose lyrics soar and undulate against a rolling and bursting backdrop of brass and woodwinds. The piece seems to evoke darkness and oppression from the very opening notes, and as such it’s been fittingly used to highlight the most dramatic moments in everything from the film Excalibur to a Gatorade commercial.

Afterward, fellow Laureate Hilary Apfelstadt conducts a women’s choir through a set of hymn-like songs specially suited for female voices. Among these is Guy Forbes’s modernist Ave Maria, Nancy Telfer’s otherworldly The Blue Eye of God, and Michael Sample’s arrangement of Cancion de los Tsáchilas, whose instrumentation evokes insects and tropical birdsong.<p>
