Haydn The Creation 110'

Haydn’s joyful oratorio brings to life the biblical story of the creation. From the threatening orchestral representation of chaos to the glorious choral coming of light, from the clever musical depictions of animals such as the roaring lion and the creeping worm to the intimate love expressed between Adam and Eve, The Creation is a colourful celebration of the world and one of Haydn’s masterpieces.
