Chicago Sinfonietta | Primal Instincts

cristinapato_CONCERT4Gluttony, lust, passion, grief—be ready to have your most primitive impulses triggered, when you are moved by the first notes from the tragic tale ofCarmen by Georges Bizet.
Things get even hotter with a new tango-jazz inspired work featuring incendiary Galician bagpiper Cristina Pato, before the orchestra delivers the final primordial blow with one of the most overpowering works of all time, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, inspired by medieval texts about the fickleness of fate and fortune.
