Struck by the overwhelming impact of Georg Friedrich Händel's oratorios during his stay in London, Franz Joseph Haydn wanted to tackle what was the most important compositional project of his career: an overwhelming, large-scale work, capable of moving a large audience and dealing with the great question of origin. The result is the oratorio The Creation, a classical and illustrated vision of the biblical story of Genesis for solo voices, choir and orchestra.

Program

With a text that starts from Genesis and the Book of Psalms as well as from John Milton's Paradise Lost, Haydn focuses on the human being as the proud bearer, worthy and sovereign, of the miracle of creation. A sublime hymn of praise to the Demiurge, a guiding principle that transcends the Age of Enlightenment and which has undoubtedly become one of the greatest masterpieces of human history.
