After Elijah, another of the most dramatic oratorios ever written. One of the great choral masterpieces of Haydn’s old age, The Creation brings to life the whole story of the creation of the world, from the opening depiction of Chaos and ‘Let there be light’, to the pastoral romance of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

‘Haydn alone has the secret both of making me smile and of touching my innermost soul’. W A Mozart
