Reviews of this publication:



* The oratorio The Creation represents not only a crucial point in

beginning of a new chapter in the history of the oratorio

The oratorio “The Creation” represents not only a crucial point in
Joseph Haydn‘s compositional
output, but at the same time, marks the beginning of a new chapter
in the history of the oratorio.
At the turn of the 19th century, Haydn broke with the traditional
dominance of the arias, giving the
chorus a distinctly greater significance. This opened the way for a
new kind of choral oratorio
which became one of the standard features of developing bourgeois
concert life.

The plot is divided into three parts: Part One portrays the first
four days of creation with the
genesis of the world, the plants and the firmament, and in Part Two
the animals are included.
Part Three takes as its theme the life of the first people, Adam and
Eve, with the oratorio
culminating in two major closing choruses of praise and thanks. The
text, translated from the
English original by Baron van Swieten, Prefect of the imperial court
library in Vienna, combines
prose texts of the creation story in Luther’s translation of the
bible with complementary excerpts
from John Milton’s “Paradise Lost” (duration: approx. 110 mins).

- New edition based on the Urtext from the Complete Edition of
“Joseph Haydn’s Works”, published
by G. Henle Verlag

- Vocal score with a contemporary piano reduction by A. E. Müller,
revised by A. Köhs

- Excellent presentation on the page
