Haydn – The Creation

Nashville Symphony | Nicholas McGegan, conductor | Nashville Symphony Chorus | Ashley Valentine, soprano | Isaiah Bell, tenor | Anthony Reed, bass

  • The Creation is considered by many to be Haydn’s masterpiece. The oratorio depicts the creation of the world as described in the book of Genesis.
  • This piece is very dramatic, as the opening captures the emergence of life and light from chaos and darkness. One part of the work depicts the creation of the animals, with different musical motifs representing a lion, a tiger, insects and more.
  • British conductor Nicholas McGegan is one of the finest Baroque conductors of his generation and an early music expert.
  • Soprano Ashley Valentine, tenor Isaiah Bell, and bass Anthony Reed are all very talented singers and early music specialists.

Learn more about the music you’ll hear onstage at our FREE Classical Conversations with Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero, taking place one hour before the concert every evening in the Balcony Lobby.
