Orff – Carmina Burana on Telarc – A Very Old Review

More of the music of Carl Orff

xxxxx

This IMMACULATE Telarc Double LP with Virtually No Sign Of Play is one of the greatest audiophile records of all time and Telarc’s greatest recording! No recording gets more realism with this work … depth, dynamics, colors & performance!

Why don’t more of their recordings sound like this? Telarc is not a label I would normally associate with good sound but you have to give them credit here: they knocked this one out the park. They have made good records in the past — this one is proof enough, and some of the Fennel titles are quite good — but most of their catalog leaves much to be desired and is hard to recommend.

Performed by the Atlanta Symphony and Chorus conducted by Robert Shaw. Sides 1 through 3 are Carmina Burana; side 4 is Paul Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis.

The fold-open cover has a 1″ split on the top seam but is otherwise in BEAUTIFUL conditon. It looks like it’s never even been cracked open!
