Haydn's sacred oratorio The Creation (Die Schopfung) performed by the London Symphony Orchestra
and Chorus, conducted by Sir Colin Davis at the Barbican in London.
Haydn is at his most ambitious, having been inspired by hearing Handel's Messiah during visits to London.
The Creation is divided into three parts: 1 and 2 give an account of the six days of the Creation itself, while
part 3 introduces us to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
The soloists are Sally Matthews (soprano), Ian Bostridge (tenor) and Dietrich Henschel (baritone).
