When I got home from the ceramics studio tonight Orff’s Carmina Burana was playing on KUSC. (I leave the radio on for Juki so he does not feel lonely). This piece always makes me smile. I think it’s great when classical musical merges with popular culture- even to the point when it’s almost kitsch. (Magic Flute ringtones? Yes I have heard them on the street outside the Disney Concert Hall but that’s another story… ) So I’m not sure which orchestra was broadcasting tonight but here is a performance I found on YouTube.
The best know piece is “O Fortuna”. When you listen to this you will have flashbacks of multiple media moments. Totally kitsch!
