Oh I like these two performers, they did Ava Maria, that I placed. Very soothing.

Right, they're the same duo. They call their act "Ten Strings".
They have a lot of vids on YouTube, here:

Carmina Burana

by Carl Orff
This was the dramatic rendition of Carl Orff's most famous piece of music, how he wanted it to look but seldom performed as such nowadays. It was finally filmed by West German TV in 1975 with the close co-operation of Orff in honour of his 80th birthday. The various stories of young lust and gluttony are playfully and skillfully brought to life. This version of Orff's masterpiece of the sacred and profane was hard to find in Germany. Not so strange, it was banned there for decades, most likely because of its almost literal interpretation of the texts Orff put music to. The mixture of Christian and pagan imagery is completely consistent with the lyrics, which were found in a monastery, and are a mixture of sacred and profane songs, but were obviously too tough to swallow. Copies of the film were destroyed, but luckily, art prevailed.
          
This performance of the complete Carmina Burana
lasts just over an hour
- and it's well worth the time.
But save it for when you have
a free hour to watch it all.

To better appreciate this amazing
and historic work, you should read the Wikipedia article about it.

Hey all! This is definitely my place to be :) I'm a huge classical music fan. Unfortunately I'm at the beginning of my clonazepam taper and depression and dp/dr has set in, so I can't be as enthusiastic as I usually am about music. Still, classical music has been the guiding light in my life so I can't let go of its power.
Here's two Finnish favorites - the second is from Einojuhani Rautavaara, a great composer who recently passed.

Are there any other fans of contemporary composition/avant-garde music?
