SUNDAY 10 MAY, 3.00PM
VERBRUGGHEN HALL
CITY RECITAL HALL

Epic and intimate.

Lions, tigers, eagles, doves, stags, whales – even worms come alive in Haydn’s spectacular musical depiction of the Creation.

Dramatic advances in instrument technology had given the composer a whole new palette of colours to paint with, and Haydn revels in these new expressive possibilities: from the dazzling glory of Light shattering Darkness, the roaring waves of the ocean and the infinite expanses of the sky, to the tenderness of Adam and Eve walking hand in hand through the Garden of Eden. And who better to bring Haydn’s sound world alive than the master musicians of the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra, playing on instruments from Haydn’s own time!
