Joseph Haydn

The Creation, Hob.XXI:2

One of the special moments of the 24/25 season will be the performance of Joseph Haydn’s oratorio The Creation, directed by Hannu Lintu. The Principal Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra refers to this masterpiece by the German composer as one of the most optimistic in the choral repertoire, travelling from chaos to a radiant future. A score that draws on the books of Genesis, the Psalms and John Milton’s poem Paradise Lost to create a dazzling celebration of the creation of the world. For Lintu, every Haydn piece is an adventure, and this one, he believes, is the most beautiful of all.
