Orff – Carmina Burana. Dani Howard – Argentum. Williams, In the Fen Country

Norwich Lanes

The 2022/23 season kicks off with a bang when the Phil Orchestra and Chorus join forces in Carl Orff’s timeless masterpiece, Carmina Burana. From the opening bars of ‘O Fortuna’ to the final chords, Orff’s dynamic setting of medieval secular poems celebrates life’s pleasures and perils, packed with catchy tunes and orchestral fireworks.

We celebrate the 150th anniversary of Vaughan Williams’ birth with a performance of In the Fen Country, inspired by the composer’s travels through East Anglia to collect folk songs, and the programme opens with Argentum, commissioned for the 25th anniversary of ClassicFM and premiered at the Royal Albert Hall in 2017, by rising young British composer Dani Howard, recently nominated for a South Bank Sky Arts Award for her Trombone Concerto, hailed by The Times’ Richard Morrison as ‘an instant classic’.
