Format: Audio CD
This low-cost Warner Apex release (complete with notes and translations) is a re-issue of the 1986 Teldec set that I have in my collection (here, The Creation - you can also find this recording in a Warner box set here Haydn : Vol 6 Oratorios & Opera : Die Schopfung, Die Jahreszeiten, Original Canonzettas Books 1 & 2; Arias, Cantata, Cavatina, Insanae Et Vanae Curae), recorded live that year in the Kozerthaus Wien. It's a fine version of Haydn's late masterpiece, displaying few of the idiosyncrasies that Harnoncourt can exhibit. Although a live recording, I doubt that there was an audience present; if there was they were a very well-behaved, silent bunch. This 2-CD set offers typical clear Teldec sound with no discernable "digital edge".

It's the German language version, of course, and features the Wiener Symphoniker, Edita Gruberova, Josef Protschka and Robert Holl, all in fine voice. The continuo is provided by Walter Schulz on cello and Herbert Tachezi on fortepiano. Whilst not an "authentic" performance, Harnoncourt brings his decades of historically-informed practice to the production and the wonderful Arnold-Schönberg-Chor are their usual splendid selves.

An excellent, inexpensive choice for those seeking a German-language recording of Haydn's "Creation"
