The Creation


The Creation, originally uploaded by ardeton_quartet.

What a great concert for Easter Sunday. Not without it’s mishaps- a suprise double-length recfitative cut short by the continuo/conductor, and a singer who instead of starting a recit says “sorry” out loud for his mistake- but what an amazing work.

Maybe it’s just Aldeburgh, but yesterday everybody seemed to go to church today. To then finish 2 hours of playing extolling the greatness of God seemed fitting. My favourite line? “And God made lots of things, and they were very good” (I think it lost something in translation from German to English), and heavy repetition of the word “firmament”.
