Wojciech Kilar is arguably one of Poland’s finest composers and one of Music Director Krzysztof Urbanski’s favorites. As a popular film composer, Kilar’s music has been featured in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, The Truman Show and The Pianist. With broad phrases and swirling rhythms, Orawa is a compelling representation of nature and the human response to the beauty of the land.
Featured as background music to NFL football, TV commercials and movies alike, Carmina Burana is an inescapable phenomenon. Set to a collection of 13th-century poems, the work adheres to Orff’s artistic principle of “Total Theatre” in which music, movement and speech become inseparable. The ISO and Indianapolis Symphonic Choir unite in a spectacular pairing of this masterwork.
