Album Summary

>Haydn, Franz Joseph : Die Schöpfung (The Creation), oratorio, H. 21/2
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Inspired by Haydn's trips to England, where he first heard Handel's oratorios, The Creation is widely considered the composer's crowning masterpiece. Set for three vocal soloists, four-part chorus, and large orchestra, there seems little doubt that Haydn wanted a big sound (by the standard of his day). Based on both the biblical Genesis and Milton's Paradise Lost, the oratorio was premiered in the U.S. by the Handel and Haydn Society in 1819. One of America's oldest continuously performing arts organizations, Handel and Haydn Society celebrated its bicentennial season in 2014/15. Harry Christophers has been Artistic Director since 2008.

Sunday Times, 27th September 2015
Both steeped in tradition and aware of period manners. The choral and orchestral forces are optimum for a piece from the late 18th century, and three stylish British soloists (Sarah Tynan, Jeremy Ovenden, Matthew Brook) make a strong case for a performance sung in English.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2016
An exceptional account of the oratorio from all points of view... but what is wholly exceptional is the diction of both soloists and choir; you can hear every word without referring to the text printed in the booklet... the choir also impresses with its bright, fresh tone, while the orchestra supplies distinctive colour and vibrancy; their playing is consistently alert.
