Performers

James Gower
bass-baritone
Simon Over
conductor

From an era when choral music was seen as the pinnacle of a composer’s creative ambitions, Haydn’s The Creation stands as his greatest work in the field, an oratorio whose scope encompasses the genesis of the world itself. From his unforgettable depiction of the emergence of light from chaos, which so electrified the audience at the first performance, to the realisations of sun, moon and all manner of animals, this work is the highest point of Haydn’s own creation, its lengthy and meticulous gestation indicative of the importance with which he viewed it, and its place in his musical legacy.
