About

Die Schöpfung (The Creation) is one of the great choral masterpieces that Haydn composed after finishing his 104th Symphony in 1795. It is a work championed by Igor Markevitch who made a critically-acclaimed recording of it with a compelling team of soloists, including the radiant Irmgard Seefried.

Accompanied by tenor Richard Holm (Uriel), Kim Borg, bass (Raphael, Adam), and the Choir of St. Hedwig’s Cathedral, Berlin, the Berliner Philharmoniker thrive under Igor Markevitch’s baton.

‘a fine and vivid performance under Markevitch and with Seefried, Holm and Borg as excellent soloists’ - Gramophone, December 1956

‘an especially successful issue […] the choir of St. Hedwig’s Cathedral in Berlin sing with great beauty of tone and remarkable sensibility. Kim Borg makes a magisterial Raphael (as well as a tender Adam) […] The recording is first class and the whole performance captures the wonderful glow of happiness that permeates the music.’ - Gramophone, August 1956
