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.
