Make way, Orff

Medieval group Corvus Corax has decided to record their version of the "Carmina Burana", a collection of songs from the middle ages dealing with drinking, love and humour. Different artists from the classical and new medieval scene are taking part to make this project a success: The Philharmonic Orchestra as well as the Choir of the Staatstheater Cottbus, vocal ensemble Psalteria from Prag, Choir "Ivan pl. Zajc" from Zagreb and the drummers from Potentia Animi. Conducting duties will be handled by Jörg Iwer, who has extensive experience with Orffs version of the songs and led alternative scorings as well. After a succesful first rehearsal in Cottbus at the end of January, everything is now set for the live premiere of the work at the Wacken Open Air on the fifth of August and the release of the acompanying CD three days later.
