Haydn—The Creation (2018)
Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
Houston Symphony Chorus
This two-disc CD features Haydn’s joyous and uplifting oratorio The Creation, which is thrillingly brought to life by the Houston Symphony, the Houston Symphony Chorus under the leadership of Dr. Betsy Cook Weber and the acclaimed operatic soloists Nicole Heaston, Toby Spence and Peter Rose.
With its startling dramatic gestures, bold orchestral colors and sublimely beautiful word painting, Haydn’s depiction of the Genesis creation story remains his supreme masterpiece and one of the best-loved works in the choral repertoire. From the creation of light to Adam and Eve’s love duet, Haydn brings to life the birds, beasts and angels which all rejoice in soaring, life-affirming music.
