Haydn Creation is a ground-breaking work. It is remarkable for its ingenious and original use of the orchestra to describe the Book of Genesis. The Creation is full of delight including great whales, sunrise, rolling seas and even leaping tigers all evoked in a rich tapestry of sound. Haydn Creation is one of the greatest oratorios.
