With this arrangement it is possible to present the work in a performance space of limited size. Haydn’s original orchestration is filled with vivid tone painting and this reduced version represents Haydn’s score using accurate colors for the obligato melodies and appropriate instrumental voices for the colla parte passages. It follows the format and content of the critical edition by Carus (ed. W. Gersthofer) and may be used together with the other materials from Carus 51.990 (choral and vocal scores, string parts).

Modern performances of Creation use sometimes 50–60 players. It is hoped that the present reduction will make this beautiful work available to smaller groups, smaller performance venues, and groups with smaller budgets.
