Haydn The Creation

‘I was never so devout as during the time I was working on The Creation,’ wrote Haydn. The Genesis story gave him a matchless opportunity to depict the glories of nature – the animals and birds, the woodlands, the sea, the stars – and, in music of astonishing originality, the chaos before God created the world.

The Creation was suggested by Handel’s oratorios, but its music is quite different to Handelian grandiosity. It encapsulates Haydn at his best: genial, witty, wise, always open to awe and wonder and to an uncomplicated enjoyment of life.

Performed in association with the World Symposium on Choral Music 2020 (WSCM)
