Opening with one of the most recognizable choruses in classical music, Carl Orff’s visceral oratorio Carmina burana is an exhilarating setting of medieval poems. Beginning a program of spirited storytelling is Saint-Saëns’ Danse macabre, a chilling dance with Death on All Hallow’s Eve, followed by the sumptuous Second Suite from Roussel’s ballet about the legendary abduction and enchantment of Ariadne.
