Steve Shults, At­lanta, GA, US

I grew up in the San Fran­cisco Bay area and lived there for 55 years but, af­ter we moved to the At­lanta area last June, I am miss­ing my home town and its or­ches­tra. Orff ’s Carmina

Bu­rana is one of many fine record­ings that Her­bert Blom­st­edt made as mu­sic di­rec­tor of the San Fran­cisco Sym­phony. It’s prob­a­bly my favourite disc of this old warhorse, with won­der­ful soloists and choral singing – and top-drawer Decca record­ing.
