Haydn’s oratorio The Seasons is a joyous evocation of the world in which he had grown up. It followed the international success of The Creation and was his last major work, first performed in Vienna in 1801. Four cantatas describe the changing seasons from Spring through to Winter and the daily life and activities of the country people.

From ploughing and sowing, tending the sheep and welcoming the summer sun, to harvesting, hunting and shivering in the cold of winter, Haydn celebrates the pastoral world and its Creator in music full of vitality and imagination, with delightful solos, exciting choruses and brilliant orchestral writing.

This performance is sung in English.
