Orff is often roundly condemned for his political associations, but I still regard Carmina Burana (1935-36) as one of the outstanding choral works of the twentieth century. I can't say that I really care for anything else from his extensive catalogue of compositions.

The old problem of separating the man (or woman) from the music/ art/ poetry/ literature/ film/ television, etc., that they created...

It's difficult, isn't it? I know logic states we should try to separate them but I'm not sure that I can: I feel that somehow I might find Wagner's music much more palatable if he hadn't held such loathsome views. I'm sure lots of composers whose music I appreciate had some unfortunate attitudes or habits but I find racism/antisemitism impossible to disregard. One can even overlook Gesualdo's little indiscretion which was, after all, a crime passionnel.

It's probably an egregious fault in my personality, but I've never had this problem. To me Wagner's music is Wagner's music, Orff's music is Orff's music, Riefenstahl's films are Riefenstahl's films...
