The Biblical creation story told in music of cosmic grandeur; a journey of uninhibited joy from the dramatic moment the first ray of light hits the waters of the deep.
It’s hard to imagine a choral work more life-affirming than Haydn’s ‘Creation’. A vision of the universe that embraces both earthworms and angels, it’s absolutely perfect for Arcangelo’s expressive range. For this performance, our Barbican debut, we are delighted to welcome soloists Anna Lucia Richter, Toby Spence and Thomas Bauer.
