Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
The Creation (“Die Schöpfung”)

haydn

The Creation was rapturously received by the audience when it premiered at Schwarzenberg Palace in Vienna in 1798.

During two visits to the UK in the 1790s, Haydn was inspired by Handel’s music.  Thus, with renewed impetus and armed with John Milton’s ‘Paradise Lost’, the tutor of Beethoven and friend of Mozart composed his masterpiece, collaborating with his patron, Baron Gottfried van Swieten, to translate the English text into German.

Set out in three parts, it commences with the Representation of Chaos being transformed into order and light; Part II continues celebrating each aspect of the creation, whilst Part III is dedicated to the relationship between Adam and Eve.
