Haydn’s “Creation”

The Mendelssohn Choir and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra bring Franz Josef Haydn‘s magnum opus The Creation to life, under the baton of PSO Music Director Manfred Honeck.  After a trip to London in 1795, Haydn wanted to inspire the world with his music, much like Londoners still celebrated G. F. Handel, more than 40 years after his death.  With The CreationHaydn set out to write “a work that will give permanent fame to my name in the world!”  The work highlights Haydn‘s love of nature, his musical genius, and his deep faith.  The MCP and PSO, with soloists Rachele Gilmore, Werner Güra, and Alexander Elliott, put a new twist on this old favorite, with acclaimed director Sam Helfrich, in an all-new theatrical production!
