Carl Orff 1895-1982

Orff, who was born in Munich, liked to describe himself as a "true Bavarian". His world fame was assured by one single work - Carmina Burana. However, Orff also composed a great deal of other music, as well as rising to prominence in music education: he founded and developed a society to promote elementary music teaching.
