Many songwriters are satisfied if they can find a verb that rhymes with twerk, but Joseph Haydn had even greater things on his mind when he assembled a little piece called The Creation. The epic oratorio is merely an attempt to evoke the invention of the universe, with the 18th-century Austrian composer borrowing from the Book of Genesis and John Milton's Paradise Lost to pump up his euphoric origin story. Hardy vocalists Rachele Gilmore, Joshua Guerrero and Johannes Kammler will have to pace themselves as conductor Gustavo Dudamel presides over an expanded version of the L.A. Philharmonic. Venezuelan filmmaker Alberto Arvelo lets the light in further with a video installation.
