Het Paradijs (The Paradise)

Using the three oratorios by Franz Joseph Haydn (Die Schöpfung, Die Jahreszeiten and Die Sieben letzten Worte) as a starting point, the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble, together with Flemish writer Bart Moeyaert, created a successful music theater trilogy consisting of De Schepping (The Creation), Het Paradijs (The Paradise) and De Hemel (The Heaven).

Het Paradijs is the second part of the cycle, based on Haydn’s oratorio Die Jahreszeiten (The Seasons) in a special arrangement for wind ensemble by Hans van der Heide. Bart Moeyaert wrote a new text to accompany the old music and is the narrator during the concerts.

The story of Het Paradijs begins where The Schepping ended. The Garden of Eden is one of abundance. Bart Moeyaert’s language sizzles. With a few strokes of the pen, he describes the exuberant nature and stimulates all the senses. He subtly conveys that amidst all the harmony, only two dissonances are present: the man who tells the story and the woman who is with him.
