Our principal Artist Sir Simon Rattle returns to his ‘home’ orchestra to conduct Haydn’s masterpiece and musical gamechanger, The Creation. An instant hit at its first playing in both London and Germany, the opening depiction of chaos (together with vivid musical representations of sunrise and leaping lions) remains one of the most original and startling passages of music from the Classical era. This performance will be sung in English.
