Review: “Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) presents Carmina Burana in Review.”

“…this performance used the 1956 reduced version… It’s an effective arrangement, but it obviously cannot match the grandeur of the sound of the huge orchestra in the original… Despite my initial skepticism about this version, I was quickly won over by the tautness of conception and the unflagging energy. Whatever was lost in power from the small forces was more than compensated in the high-octane enthusiasm of the outstanding pianists Tzu-yi Chen and Jeremy Filsell and six young (unnamed) percussionists. The three vocal soloists all brought their A-game to the stage, with voices that could fill any hall without any strain or stridency.”
