So, I'm looking for commentary and opinion.... I've decided to begin another Orchestral work -in the hopes of having one around to submit to competitions in the future. I've decided that I want to create an orchestral tone poem depicting the creation as mention in the book of Bereshit (Genesis). My take is a multilayered approach that includes incorporating concepts derived from Quantum Mechanical understanding of matter from both the macro and microcosmic understanding. Thus, it's going to be a rather large scale work in scope that incorporates many different compositional techniques which I've already begun sketching out. Anyways, what I'd like to glean from others on here is your own personal takes on Haydn's Creation. Also, if any of you have any other works that deal with the topic of creation.... please share in.
