Named one of the 'Top Ten Classical CDs of 2012' Manchester Evening News

'The sound is beautifully balanced, and Haydn's livelier choral episodes showcase the ensemble's terrific flexibility.' Opera News

'Even so, Pearlman's expert Boston players and vocalists-Deas; deft, ultra-charming Met tenor Keith Jameson; and spring water clear soprano Amanda Forsythe, who aces her ravishing arias and scatters delightful trills-make this well-recorded set a delight.' Time Out NY

 

Boston Baroque, conducted by Martin Pearlman recorded Haydn's masterpiece at Mechanics Hall in Worchester, Massachusetts. The soloists Amanda Forsythe soprano, Keith Jameson tenor and Kevin Deas bass-baritone joined the ensemble for the performance of Haydn's crowning achievement.  The Creation remains one of the greatest works in the choral repertoire and has been astonishing audiences since its premiere in 1798.

The ensemble's previous performances of The Creation have received rave reviews, with the Boston Globe stating: ‘Boston Baroque performed [Haydn's Creation] with vibrant color and a fleet momentum...and made it a vivid, effervescent occasion.'
