Best version of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana? The headline pretty much says it all. What's the best version and why do you think it's the best one? I'm looking for the classical version, not any of the techno or remixed versions, and when I say "best", I mean the best performance/conductor/orchestra that's hopefully available on cd. For what it's worth, I've only heard a few versions, but I especially liked the version of O Fortuna used in the movie Excalibur. I think it has just the right amount of dramatic flair and I like the slightly faster speed.
