Music Direction 2014

Haydn’s oratorio The Creation (Die Schöpfung) depicts nothing less than the creation of the world, based on the Bible’s Book of Genesis and Book of Psalms, and Milton’s Paradise Lost. It is the work with which the Oratorio Society of New York (OSNY), New York’s standard for grand choral performance, will open its 2014-15 season at Carnegie Hall on Monday, November 3, 2014, at 8:00 PM. OSNY Music Director Kent Tritle will conduct The Creation in its German language version

Mr. Tritle refers to his tenure with the OSNY as “a decade of growth.” He says, “My decade of work with the Oratorio Society of New York has been an absolute joy. A tremendous amount of growth has happened in all areas – the development of rhythmic vitality, the cultivation of high diction standards, and the evolution of a sound that is consistently warm and blended. Weve done all this without losing the essential esprit de corps-in fact, as the musical bar has risen, I believe the chorus has become more engaged and stronger as a community than ever before.”
