Haydn: Die Schöpfung

Thomas Hengelbrock

  • Sun04February17:00 H

After his spectacular Elijah at the Festival Hall, we had no hesitations – we wanted to hear music history’s great choral works under the baton of Thomas Hengelbrock. Since grandeur is a must: we need to be truly blinded by Haydn’s dazzling musical depiction of light. With his passion for fine-tuning down to the very last detail, Thomas Hengelbrock is someone who is capable of performing such miracles. The effects he brings forth from the score are so convincing because they reveal the music’s very essence: in this case, Haydn’s unquenchable optimism founded on the ideals of the Enlightenment.
