Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohn's 'Elijah', one of the most important oratorios of the 19th century, premiered in Birmingham in 1846 and was emphatically celebrated both by the public and the press. The libretto is composed entirely from biblical texts. Important excerpts from the life of the prophet are strung together like snapshots, some of which are highly dramatic.
