The Creation
By Joseph Haydn / The Vienna Boys' Choir's Chorus Juventus / Kammerphilharmonie Lockenhaus / Conductor: Norbert Brandauer

* abgespielt

Joseph Haydn’s highly successful visits to England moved him to write a work about the creation of the world. Using all his experience and the power of his overflowing inspiration, he set to music the text adapted by Gottfried van Swieten, and in doing so gifted the world one of the greatest oratorios in the history of music. In illuminating colour, we experience the world being created out of Chaos, the installation of the stars, the emergence of animals and finally of man. The final part sings of the wonderfully pure love between Adam and Eve.

The Vienna Boys’ Choir’s Chorus Juventus performs here with Kammerphilharmonie Lockenhaus for the first time. They will bring a fresh, youthful quality to the music of Haydn.
