Autographed high quality original photograph of the composer and ethnomusicologist by Filipp, Munich.

Orff (1895-1982) holds an interesting place in the World of music.  His cantata, “Carmina Burana” premiered in 1937 as the Facists cemented their power and launched the career at age 42 of an otherwise failed composer to that time.  Today, the work is oft played by symphony orchestras, opera companies and choral groups.  It has been well featured in films as well.  That said, three other works, “Antigone”, “Die Kluge” and “Prometheus” are also well represented particularly in Europe.  Orff was also an ethnomusicologist with an interest in the music of the African Continent and put a number of rhythms he found in his work with children another major facet of his career.
