From darkness to radiant light, from wasteland to animated earth –

“The Creation” by Joseph Haydn is a fascinating musical painting of nature, that is one of the masterpieces of Western music history. The composer combines sacred seriousness with subtle humour and mighty choruses with intimate arias. Haydn’s large-scale oratorio, first performed in Vienna in 1801, is a celebration of life. In the past, people have emphasised the monumental nature of this musical creation story. Haydn connoisseur Giovanni Antonini, together with the Basel Chamber Orchestra playing on period instruments, the Bavarian Radio Chorus, heard for the first time in Klosters, and an outstanding solo trio, will establish a transparent, immensely vivid reading. Sound painting as an event!
