Gripping eyewitness account by three archangels

There are some works one can never get enough of. The Creation is one such work. Time and again its unflagging energy and creativity do honour to its title. Haydn portrays each of the six days of creation down to their tiniest detail. He then follows this with the story of Adam and Eve, borrowed from Milton's Paradise Lost. The studied confusion of the Chaos just before the Creation and then the triumphant breakthrough of Light – Haydn's own big bang in music history – turned out to be a masterful move. The Viennese audiences who flocked to hear it all agreed: this oratorio was not to be missed. It is no coincidence then this masterpiece was our debut concert when the Concertgebouw opened its doors in 2002, with our resident artists of the very first hour Anima Eterna Brugge and Jos van Immerseel. A great opportunity to look both back and forward, with a work that sings the praises of nature’s richness like no other.

Hans Van Dyck enlightens us on human instincts and the behaviour of other animals before the performance.
