By Santa Fe Listener HALL OF FAME on December 21, 2007
I agree with everything noted by the reviewer above -- this is a relaxed, genial reading of Haydn's choral masterpiece, with a distinclty Viennese feeling. The presence of the Vienna Boys Choir adds a certain cachet -- they sing veyr well -- and conductor Peter Marschik is respectful of the score while bringing a good deal of joy and good humor. The soloists are also a mite careful but all are good, especially the tenor. (Only the fluttery male soprano is off-putting, with his tendency to lunge at high notes and shriek at loud volume, but he's undeniably musical.) The recording is extracted from live concerts in 1994, and you can hear a minimum of audience and stage noise. Nobody will ever recommend this as a first choice -- I can't even find a review online from Fanfare of the Gramophone -- but it's a lot more enjoyable than big-dour efforts from Gardiner, Jochum, Christie, Harnoncourt, et al. Any "Creation" that keeps me smilling gets the thumbs up.

Haydn's "Creation" is one of the greatest masterpieces of choral music, right up there with the best of Handel and Mozart, even Bach. It has been recorded many times, notably in "HIP" (historically informed performance) manner in the past two decades or so. This one is a little old-fashioned in the sense that it is not smaller scale, but it has some distinctive features.

One is the use of a male soprano as the angel Gabriel, a prominent part in this work. Max Emanuel Cencic was a boy soprano with the Vienna Boys Choir in the late '80s and early '90s. Somehow he preserved his singing technique and is still singing soprano here after his voice broke. (Curiously the notes refer to this, but still describe him as a boy soprano.) I would be surprised if any recording or performance of this work actually uses a boy soprano. One HIP recording, that of Bruno Weil on Sony, uses a boys choir, but the same adult female soprano sings both Gabriel and Eva.

There are a few other recordings that use a boys choir--which is probably authentic. But most of the HIP versions do not.

Anyway, the key to this work is that it should be performed in a joyous and exuberant manner. And this version is. It's a live performance from 1994, perhaps derived from two separate performances in the best takes from each. I was particularly impressed not only by the soloists, including Cencic, but also by the orchestra. There is a real sense of occasion here.

This is one of those works that are so good that having more than one version is a good idea. I'm glad I picked this one up.
