Soli Deo Gloria’s DVD of The Creation (Die Schöpfung) is both a musical and a visual feast. Filmed in the beautiful setting of Grote Kerk, one of the oldest churches in the Netherlands, Haydn’s musical portrait of the mystery of Creation comes alive under the direction of conductor John Nelson. The acoustics of the venue make the music sound magical, and the results are a magnificent Creation. Part of the Soli Deo Gloria Collection. For more information please visit: www.SDGmusic.org. Filmed live at the Grote Kerk, Naarden, Netherlands in June 2010. Directed by Rhodri Huw.
Franz Joseph Haydn: The Creation - Die Schöpfung
Franz Joseph Haydn
“I don’t think there is any composer who had more of a sense of humor than Haydn. He was just
naturally given to fun, to joy, to humor… and you find it all in this music.”
John Nelson, conductor
