‘When I think of God,’ said Joseph Haydn, ‘I can write only cheerful music.’ The Creation makes his point perfectly, yet this choral masterpiece offers much more than just blithe-spirited joy. The composer’s suitably exalted vision of a universe emerging from chaos inspired music of monumental grandeur, laced with sparkling melodies and soaring choruses. Featuring the CBSO chorus and splendid soloists conducted by Juanjo Mena, The Creation will make a life-affirming opening to the new season.
Note that this performance will be sung in German.
