Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Haydn's 'Creation', the culmination of his life's work, in a legendary 1986 performance conducted by Leonard Bernstein in the exquisite Baroque splendor of the Benedictine Abbey of Ottobeuren, Bavaria, is now available on DVD for the first time. This spectacular performance also includes Bernstein's spoken introduction to the performance - always an invaluable addition to any concert. The work, considered by many to be Haydn's masterpiece, depicts the creation of the world as inspired by the texts of Genesis, the Book of Psalms and Milton's Paradise Lost. Though deeply religious in conception, the oratorio gives a physical sense of the immensity of nature and the world's creation.
