NativeDSD is excited to bring you the amazing Carmina Burana from Budapest with the Budafok Dohnanyi Orchestra on Hunnia Records. It is their 4th album at NativeDSD and follows the earlier Pure DSD 256 Stereo releases Pictures, Born For Passion: Virtuoso Hungarian Symphonic Music and Sound of Movies.
Our very own Engineer Tom Caulfield was at the session and helped record & balance the album before mastering it. The album features 56 recorded channels of audio. But there is more!
Orff’s Carmina Burana is one of the most popular works in music history. Orff brilliantly captured the elementality, playfulness, mischievousness and a kind of seductive vulgarity of these poems in the Benediktbeuern collection.
Orff’s rhythm-centered musical language was particularly suited to the setting of these poems, and the musical material, which is repeated three times in the strophicity of each movement, makes the listener a fan of the work almost at first hearing. Numerous images and recordings of sound and scenic productions preserve the work for posterity.
This recording is nothing more and nothing less than a real musical delight. The performing apparatus recorded Orff’s work in an extraordinary setting – the renovated Royal Riding School in Buda – after many concerts.
We hope that listeners will also enjoy this recording.
