Let There Be Light! - Joseph Haydn’s: The Creation

Presented by San Jose Symphonic Choir

Journey with San Jose Symphonic Choir into Joseph Haydn’s: The Creation, a grand celebration of the Dawn of Life.

A mysterious and startlingly dramatic opening gives way to sublimely beautiful word painting and bold orchestral colors that highlight Haydn’s astonishing depiction of the Genesis creation story.

From the chaos of nothingness and the creation of light to Adam and Eve’s love duet, Haydn's vivid series of scenes bring to life the birds, beasts and angels in a soaring, joyful explosion of sound that brilliantly illustrates the creation of Earth.

The Creation remains Haydn’s supreme masterpiece and one of the most joyous works ever written.
