Haydn The Creation.


  • Haydn The Creation 105′ (sung in English)

“When I think of God, I can write only cheerful music” said Joseph Haydn, and his great oratorio The Creation finds room for both angels and earthworms. But Haydn’s vision of a universe emerging from chaos also inspired music of cosmic grandeur, and with Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla conducting the CBSO Chorus and a world-class team of soloists, there’s no more life-affirming way to open our new season.

There will be a 20-minute interval.

CBSO+ 21 September, 6.15pm: Join CBSO Chief Executive Stephen Maddock OBE in conversation with Osborn Music Director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla. Audiences are advised that this pre-concert event will be filmed by the CBSO for later promotional use.
