Creation - Haydn
Saturday, 30 September 2017, 7:30 pm
Haydn’s supreme setting of the story of the Creation was
completed when the composer was 65 years old and at a time when he produced
most of his finest music. So much of
this enchanting work is both cheerful and exhilarating – there are immediately
appealing choruses, elaborate solo arias describing such subjects as colourful
flowers, boist’rous seas, doves cooing and sheep bleating, radiant duet music
for Adam and Eve and richly varied orchestral accompaniment. There is no other major composition which
challenges Haydn’s wonderful and continuously entertaining musical masterpiece.
