We are not referring to Joseph Haydn when we mention the Creation. We are instead focusing on composers who, before Haydn, portrayed their fascination of this topic. Jean-Féry Rebel composed the first Creation Story thereby using astonishingly modern sounding techniques when describing the initial chaos slowly transformed into order. In the process there is indeed a lot of storming, fizzing, sizzling, and twittering.!
