About

Following Mahler's Ninth and Bruckner's Fifth, this live recording of Joseph Haydn's The Creation is already the third CD recording to feature the masterly Bernard Haitink at the helm of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.

Haitink has been a guest conductor of the orchestra for over 50 years now. Haydn's oratorio The Creation, first performed in 1798, instantly became an established part of the repertoire and the greatest success the composer had ever experienced. Today, it still ranks as an important test for any ensemble of soloists, choir and orchestra.

The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and its Choir joined forces for this recording, together with a team of renowned soloists. The solo parts of the three archangels are sung by renowned soprano Camilla Tilling, Mark Padmore, who can also be heard in the BR-Klassik recording of Britten's 'War Requiem', and bass-baritone Hanno Müller-Brachmann who, as a representative of the younger generation, is enjoying a remarkable operatic, lieder and concert career.
