Saturday, August 1 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome will take place an event of primary importance. Both for content and for musicians engaged to represent them. This is the show “Carmina Burana in the folk tradition. Concert choir, two pianos, percussion, instruments and natural voices”, announced widely by national media and selected for the closing night of the 2015’s “Luglio suona bene”, one of the most important festivals in the music scene not only national, which takes place at the Auditorium and in particular the Cavea designed by Renzo Piano. The starting point of this show – which will alternate on stage a hundred artists – is the composition that Carl Orff, inspired by the repertoire of Carmina, wrote in 1937. Hence, under the artistic direction of Nando Citarella and Stefano Saletti, and the musical direction of Renzo Renzi, the project sought to bring together (following precise historiographical lines that demonstrate coexistence) classic and popular music. For this will be part of the show artists with different backgrounds, that will ensure the best performance of a thousand reflections of these complex expressive traditions. As you can read in the notes that present the event, the aim is to “bring the spirit of the origin of multilingual and multicultural mosaic that animated the stories told in the Codex Buranus that later took the name of Carmina Burana. They were in fact as minstrels and storytellers wandering clerics, known goliards or wandering clerics, that the twelfth to the thirteenth century composed the collection of songs later discovered in the abbey of Benediktbeuern”.
