Orff                         Carmina Burana

Tchaikovsky’s politically charged 1812 Overture was composed to celebrate the Russian defeat of the Napoleonic army. This stirring patriotic hymn has also been adopted as a symbol of U.S. independence. Carl Orff’s rousing Carmina Burana contains one of the most versatile musical pieces in the entire Western canon: the opening section, O Fortuna, featured in a multitude of soundtracks for movies, advertisements, video games and sports events.
