Born in Munich in 1895, Carl Orff is one of the most fascinating musical theatre figures of the period. His characteristic and distinctive style was sparked by an attraction to sonic experimentation. A fact which makes listening to this uncompressed recording a special delight.

The traditional orchestra arrangement with a choir and soloists as well as a large, slightly unusual percussion section, make up the typical "Orff" sound.

Herbert Kegel is considered one of the leading, if not the undisputed best conductor of contemporary music. Carl Orff himself was an ardent admirer of Kegel's recordings.
