Programme
STRAVINSKY Apollon Musag├Ęte (30’)
ORFF Carmina burana (65’)

Carl Orff’s 1936 setting of 24 medieval poems from a 12th-century collection has become a popular staple of the choral repertoire, not least because of the extraordinary popularity of one movement, “O Fortuna”, used in films, television series and even beer advertisements.  

On May 11, this glorious masterpiece will be performed by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, joined by soprano Son Jihye, lyric tenor John Zuckerman, baritone Markus Eiche, the Singapore Symphony Chorus, Hallelujah Chorus, The Philharmonic Chamber Choir and the Singapore Symphony Children’s Choir.

Conductor Lim Yau will open the concert with Stravinsky’s neo-classical ballet in which the god Apollo is visited by three muses representing poetry, rhetoric and dance.
