J. Haydn: The Creation. Carus Choir Coach

Joseph Haydn

The Creation


Hob. XXI:2, 1798


Haydn's magnificent Creation marks something akin to the "birth" of the German oratorio, in view of the fact that this work – which is popular all over the world – stands as a landmark between the great oratorios of Händel and Mendelssohn. The composition of the Creation was particularly associated with the music of Händel since Haydn, on his two trips to England in the first half of the 1790s, had been profoundly impressed by monumental performances in Westminster Abbey. The choral parts are not particularly difficult; however, in order to most effectively attain the effortlessness and vivaciousness of Haydn's music, each part should be perfectly rehearsed.

The Carus Choir Coach offers choir singers the unique opportunity to study and learn their own, individual choral parts within the context of the sound of the entire choir and orchestra. For every vocal range a separate CD containing each choir part is available. The CD is based on recorded interpretations by renowned artists who have performed the work from carefully prepared Carus Urtext editions. Each choir part is presented in three different versions:

  • Original recording
  • Coach: each voice part strongly emphasized, with the original recording sounding in the background
  • Coach in slow mode: the tempo of the coach slows down to 70% of the original version – through this reduction passages can be learned more effectively.
