Gabrieli, under Paul McCreesh, return to St John’s for a performance of Haydn’s ‘other’ great oratorio, The Seasons.

Written shortly after The Creation – and also set to a libretto by Gottfried van Swieten – this is a work that has always attracted great critical acclaim. Charles Rosen preferred The Seasons over The Creation and the writer Michael Steinberg comments that the work ensures “Haydn’s premiere place with Titian, Michelangelo and Turner, Mann and Goethe, Verdi and Stravinsky, as one of the rare artists to who mold age brings the gift of ever bolder invention.”
