Are there any good or great, multi- channel sacd's of O Fortuna?


Even a 2 channel cd recommendation would be great.


Thanks

Do you mean Carmina Burana?

If you are in fact refering to Carmina Burana, I have the Telarc multichannel version (SACD I believe) and do not like it; I can hardly believe this is from Telarc (obviously not the company they use to be
). I also have the original Telarc CD release I purchased in the early 80's and it sounds far better!

Yes.

Has anyone put out a cd or SACD that they recommend.

I believe many composers have covered it

There are only a few on SACD and, of those, I can only recommend the Shaw and the Ormandy. http://www.sa-cd.net/search/orff


OTOH, there are many on CD. Of these, I really like old Smetacek and Jochum recordings and, especially, the newish deBurgos and Kegel (Leipzig) recordings.

No. Only Carl Orff.
Try Google.

I have the Telarc ASO/Runnicles version of Carmina Burana and wasn't impressed. I believe this is the same performance of O Fortuna that is on the Telarc SACD sampler. I'll have to give the Shaw version a try.

Yup, the Runnicles was disappointing in many ways. Its only advantage over Shaw is that it is in multichannel.

Nice!

Why be snide? It takes away from your creditability.

Please skip the post, the eyerolls, snide remarks.. ect.

Your better then that.


Anyways,

Instead of composers, I should have wrote artists.

I did google it, and many have covered it.

This is why I have asked for suggestions, in the first place!


Thanks for those who helped.

The first version (Shaw, released on CD in 1983) listed on your link to sa-cd.net is the one I have on CD (purchased in 1983
). It is a wonderful recording that sounds great even on the lowly CD
. On a good system you won't miss the lack of multichannel at all.


I love to put this CD in at night, turn off all the lights, and listen to this wonderful performance. In this setting my system disappears and I'm treated to great music.


Like I said earlier, this CD is far better in every respect than the multichannel SACD version, IMO.
