We're broadcasting this performance live!
In spite of the fact that the current extraordinary situation prevents us all from meeting at Müpa Budapest in person, we would still like to make the coming days nicer and more uplifting. This is why we are going to transmit our live performance, without an audience, on our website and YouTube channel.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event, through your screen!
The performance will be broadcasted on our website and YouTube channel.
With the start of another year upon us, it will once again be time for us to encounter the great Viennese Classical master's musical setting of the Genesis story - an agreeable and dependable part of our lives that is always good to return to. As we follow the process of the six days of creation, we ours...elves can also all resolve to live the new year ahead of us in a spirit of creativity. The concept will, as always, bear out the dialectic between permanence and change: the work is eternal, but each hearing brings new features to prominence.
As with all true masterpieces, there are multiple possible readings of The Creation. Religious believers can reverently follow the depiction of divine creativity, and anyone can listen to the inexhaustible variety of Haydn's inventiveness and childlike playfulness and humour emerging in the imitation of natural phenomena - although listeners may tremble with excitement at the realisation that this simultaneously serious and light work contains in itself both the harmony of the Universe and the triumph of existence. With The Creation, his 1798 magnum opus set to biblically based text by Baron Switen, Haydn conveys the message that the world is good. We would do well to believe him. The restrictions brought about by the coronavirus sadly prohibit Ádám Fischer from taking the helm of the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra and the Hungarian Radio Choir in keeping with tradition, but his place on the podium will be taken by the excellent young conductor Róbert Farkas. With their extensive training and qualities as performers, the three outstanding soloists featured in the production - Emőke Baráth, David Fischer and Miklós Sebestyén - guarantee both world-class interpretation and an exciting international feel to the performance.
