Perhaps the most iconic and recognized choral work of the 20th century, Carmina Burana has been performed 16 times by the LA Master Chorale and has been conducted by all four music directors. Taken from the writings of medieval poets, defrocked monks, vagabond scholars and minstrels, Carmina presents a sprawling panorama of hopelessly human lovers with lechers, gamblers, drunkards and maidens behaving at their worst. Verdi’s Te Deum offers a modicum of retribution to balance the program, considered by Grant Gershon as one of his “desert island pieces” because of its lush sound, with every phrase chock full of meaning.
