The Creation was inspired by Handel’s oratorios Messiah and Israel in Egypt, which Haydn had heard while traveling to England in the mid- 1790’s. As Haydn was writing The Creation, he thought of it as the summit of his entire life’s work, and certainly, that is how many generations of music-lovers have perceived it. Haydn’s The Creation is perhaps the greatest oratorio ever written.
