Orff: Die Kluge

Berlin Classics, Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra, VINIL,

Die Geschichte vom König und der klugen Frau / Oh hätt' ich meiner Tochter nur geglaubt

Spass muss sein, sprach die Katze zum Vogel und frass ihn

Du, also du bist die Kluge

Der Konig hat wieder eine Frau

Alles ging die Kreuz, die Quer

Weh mir, wie konnt mir das geschehn

Heda! Was gibt's, wer ist's?

Frag diesen Mann, was er da schafft

So also, so war's gemeint

Lass mich die Tafel dir bereiten

Hab' ich euch endlich, hab' ich euch erwischt

Komm da heraus, der Konig lasst Dich frei

Was ist, wo bin ich, wer hat das getan?

Carl Orff’s masterwork of 20th-century opera in a benchmark recording that set new standards of sound quality and interpretation. Born in Munich in 1895, Carl Orff is one of the most fascinating phenomena in the music drama of the twentieth century. He rose to prominence with his “Carmina Burana”, a work of dynamic vitality. “Die Kluge” tells the story – in the style of a fairy tale and in the spirit of a Brechtian lesson from life – of a king, a peasant and the “clever girl” of the title, his daughter, who holds all the threads of the plot in her hands. A musical stroke of genius, fresh as the day it was recorded thanks to its remarkable acoustics and the aesthetic concept underlying its sound.
“The recordings were made between 1976 and 1980 and, alongside Herbert Kegel's Beethoven cycle, are remarkable among the conductor's recordings for the quality of their sound. For many years now this record has been a regular choice on the turntable of many German audiophiles wanting to demonstrate a truly impressive atmosphere and dynamic low-frequency impulses ... It is one of the most impressive recordings to be made in Europe during the last 30 years.” (Dietrich Brakemeier, Living Stereo, Munich 1994)
