Carmina Burana Programme
This is one of the most acclaimed concerts in the Filarmonía's season, and is therefore one of our true CLASSICS. It is made up of the scenic cantata that brings together a collection of medieval poems from the 12th and 13th centuries gathered in a manuscript found in Germany, whose authors were students and clerics. In it, earthly pleasures and carnal love are extolled, thus criticising the social and ecclesiastical elements of the time.

The unmistakable chords of Carmina Burana provoke a triumphal entry of sound into the Symphonic Hall of the National Auditorium, silencing an expectant audience and its performers who await with intrigue the outcome of one of the most reproduced stories in the world since its premiere in 1937.

The Orquesta Filarmonía, conducted by Pascual Osa, joins the Filarmonía choir, whose conductor is Rafael Albiñana, for this performance. Carl Orff, a German composer of the early 20th century, orchestrated this series of pieces, making them still popular today, even among those who do not know much about classical music, a real achievement.

The particularity of these works is that, as they were composed by ancient religious people, they knew how to write, which meant that they were able to leave their creations in these manuscripts and that they have survived to the present day. Here we leave you the beginning of 'O Fortuna', a goliard poem written in medieval Latin in the early 13th century:
O Fortuna
velut luna
statu variabilis,
semper crescis
aut decrescis;
vita detestabilis
nunc obdurat
et tunc curat
ludo mentis aciem,
egestatem,
potestatem
                                      dissolvit ut glaciem.

Program ‘Anthology of Zarzuela'

Concert of the 'Ciclo Esencial Filarmonía 2023|24' in which we return to tradition, with capital letters, through one of the works that can be considered the most traditional and a selection of the best-known zarzuela works that Maestro Pascual Osa will conduct for the enjoyment of those present. Thus, our 'Antología de la Zarzuela' returns.

This complete show will feature the full Symphony Orchestra, a Chorus of over 300 voices, plus the talented Ballet Filarmonía and a small staging on the stage of the National Auditorium.

Zarzuela is a form of theatrical music or stage musical genre that emerged in our country, and in fact it is said that the first authors to contribute to this new style were Lope de Vega and Calderón de la Barca. The latter is also apparently the first playwright to adopt the term "zarzuela". The genre's high point was in the 20th century, when works of the highest musical quality were composed, such as 'Gigantes y Cabezudos', 'El puñado de rosas' and 'Doña Francisquita'.

In addition, zarzuela can also be said to have been successful beyond Spain, and in some Latin American countries it was widely produced, with authors such as Gonzalo Roig, Carlos Curti and Ezequiel Soria standing out.

Subsequently, from 1950 onwards, zarzuela survived thanks to discography, and very successful recordings were produced, mostly directed by the Spanish musician Ataúlfo Argenta.
