Haydn The Creation

Ádám Fischer conductor
Charlotte Beament soprano
James Way tenor
Dingle Yandell bass

Make Haydn’s Creation your first concert of 2018 with this intimate New Year performance at Kings Place. 

Haydn’s oratorio The Creation is not only one of the composer’s most popular pieces, but is also one of the most vividly descriptive pieces of classical music there is. Each aspect of the story is brilliantly brought to life by Haydn’s expressive music. You can really hear the black emptiness before the First Day, the lion leaping, and experience the heat of the sun as it rises – and the added contrast and texture of our period instruments only adds to the effect.

 

Our old friend Ádám Fischer conducts the Orchestra, with the Choir of the Age of Enlightenment and a trio of soloists from our Rising Stars programme. Kicking off Kings Place’s new Time Unwrapped series, it’s a wonderful way to start the new year.
