It requires a huge orchestra and a chorus singing a mix of old languages. The riveting choral refrains of "O Fortuna" open and close <em>Carmina burana.</em> While many sections of this iconic work have been re-used in movies and commercials, nothing equals the power when you hear this live, in its entirety.</p><p><strong>Intermission Features:</strong></p><p></p><p></p><p>Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Conductor<br>David Bilger, Trumpet<br><br><a href="http://www.philorch.org/concert/carmina-burana-0?date=2013-02-14_20-00" target="_blank"><strong>Program Notes for <em>Carmina burana </em>and more...</strong></a><br><br><strong><a href="http://www.philorch.org/concert/calendar" target="_blank">Check out The Philadelphia Orchestra Website Here</a><br><br><strong>PROGRAM:</strong><br>HAYDN: Symphony No. 1 in D major</strong><br>I.
