Mozart's Attic - Thursday, Jan 22nd at 10:00 pm

Last week's program featured  Carl Orff's settings of verses from the medieval manuscripts known as the Carmina Burana, in which the 20th-century German composer was able to evoke the spirit of the middle ages in a modern work for orchestra, chorus, and soloists. This week we'll go back to the  original tablature of eleventh- through thirteenth-century pieces and some realizations of how this music might have sounded a thousand years ago.

Mozart's Attic - Thursday, Jan. 15th at 10 pm

In the early 1800's a collection of ribald -- to the point of nearly obscene -- poems were found in a German monastery. In 1936, Carl Orff set 24 of them to music and his Carmina Burana has since then achieved near-cult status. Michael Tilson Thomas directs a superb performance of this week's featured work.

Also scheduled are a set of Chopin Mazurkas, a pair of Handel organ concerti with two quite different interpretations, and Poulenc's Suite Francaise.
