Took BART. Davies Hall not far. Although it was a cool evening, it seemed a little toasty in the concert hall. Plush velvet seats hold heat. Dress in layers.

It was nothing short of a fantastic performance by all and the prolonged standing ovations were well deserved! One of the best performances of Carmina burana I ever heard!!!

The opening Haydn symphony was charmingly done. Carmina Burana was done with great panache - one of the best performances I've ever heard. Lots of energy, freshness and skill.

Description

Carl Orff’s famed cantata Carmina burana occupies a vastly different realm: its erotic energy and sheer visceral power have installed it among Western music’s most iconic works. Haydn’s Symphony No. 97, one of the composer’s beloved “London” Symphonies, illustrates his characteristic elegance and charm.
