Franz Joseph Haydn: The Creation - Die Schöpfung

“When I think upon my God, my heart is so full of joy that notes dance and leap from my pen.”
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
