Out of darkness and chaos emerges the blazing music of Haydn’s Creation, the triumphal oratorio featuring a trio of archangel soloists, a chorus of jubilant angels, and William Christie’s superlative Les Arts Florissants. With text from the Bible and Milton’s Paradise Lost, Haydn jubilantly depicts the birth of the universe through the emergence of stormy seas, radiant sky, sprightly fauna, and awestruck humanity.
Sung in German with English supertitles
“Christie’s direction throughout is fleet and unaffected, with a natural rhythmic exuberance and an unerring ear for Haydn’s miraculous orchestral detail.”– Gramophone
