Handel and Haydn Society
Inspired by Haydnís trips to England, where he first heard Handelís oratorios, The Creation is widely considered Haydnís crowning masterpiece. Set for three vocal soloists, four-part chorus, and a large Classical orchestra, there seems little doubt that Haydn wanted a big sound (by the standard of his day) for this work. Based on both the biblical Book of Genesis and Miltonís Paradise Lost, the oratorio was premiered in the US by the Handel and Haydn Society in 1819.
Harry Christophers says: ďHaydnís music is always a joy to perform but with The Creation he excels himself allowing soloists, chorus and period orchestra to revel in vivid word painting, both vocal and instrumental. Can there be a more consistently happy work than The Creation? Feel free to smile at his genius.Ē
Handel and Haydn Society is America's oldest continuously operating arts organisation. Its Bicentennial celebration began with the 2014-2015 Season and continues into the 2015-2016 Season. Harry Christophers has been Artistic Director since 2008.
