“Let there be light”: The Creation of the whole world in Haydn’s glorious oratorio.

A regular visitor to London, Haydn was inspired to write a mighty oratorio after hearing performances of Handel’s choral works. He tackled the biggest subject in the Bible: the creation of everything. The music is suitably immense, for a big orchestra, chorus and soloists. Three fantastic singers take up the solo roles while Kazuki leads the CBSO and CBSO Chorus to bring out every detail of this epic work.
