Haydn: The Creation

Bristol Choral Society

Bristol Choral Society and Bristol Ensemble

Conducted by Adrian Partington

Soprano Helen-Jane Howells
Tenor Paul Badley
Bass-baritone David Ireland

From vivid depictions of initial chaos and darkness, through the creation of light, the world and its inhabitants, Haydn packs his musical creation with inventiveness, wit, beauty and wonder. “I spent much time over it because I expect it to last for a long time,” he wrote. 217 years later, it’s easy to see why!
