Haydn's The Creation
Companion Cards accepted - tap here.
Big Sing McLaren Vale’s 2023 masterwork—The Creation by Joseph Haydn—will be conducted by maestro Graham Abbott. The Big Sing Chorus will be joined by the Adelaide Philharmonia Chorus, the Adelaide Concert Orchestra and three wonderful soloists— Ruth Blythman, Robert Macfarlane and Pelham Andrews.
Conductor Graham Abbott says of The Creation: Haydn wrote The Creation in his 60s, after he'd finished writing his symphonies, in a late career immersion in choral music, … [and they’re] among his brightest, most imaginative, and most beautiful works. The Creation, especially, stems from deep personal faith mixed with dazzling wit and ingenuity. The natural world, animals, people and angels are all portrayed with a deft hand and incredible brilliance. At the same time, Haydn's sense of humour is ever-present, with the audience blown out of their seats at the creation of light, and there’s even an unmistakable description of the first cow pat!
