– “Nun beut die Flur” by Haydn

The creation of the stars and the planets, painted by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican

Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) composed the oratorio “Die Schöpfung/The Creation” when he was 65 years of age. It is a work for choir, orchestra and soloists.

From this oratorio our MaGMa Trio performed the aria “Nun beut die Flur” during our concert in October 2017 in Dochamps. I always have loved this piece, even from the very moment that a fellow student at the Twente Conservatory in Enschede sung this. In the church of Gênes we also brought this aria.

We would like to celebrate spring with you and therefore we offer you today a video that Eric made of our concert in Dochamps. This year, snow on the 4th of May here in the Ardennes, apparently we need to remember our weather gods that May means Spring! Do enjoy this beautiful composition by Haydn!

If you’d like to read the tekst and its translation, follow this link to our blog of 30 september 2017.

Have a lovely week!
