La Création


Created under the direction of Haydn himself after two years of working without rest on composition, La Création was probably the first important work in the history of music written with posterity in mind. It includes the proclamation of humanity to the image of God, a typical conception of the Enlightenment and opposed to that of the Bach Cantatas of the years 1710-1730, which defend the insignificance of man before God.

Carlus Padrissa proposes a balancing reconciliation between Haydn and the DNA, thus creating a link between the infinitely large (the macrocosm and the creation of the world) and the infinitely small (the microcosm and the human body). This is used to create a view over what embellishes the cycle of nature as well as the cycle of life.
