Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Paul Daniel and Bryn Terfel ensure that this is one of the most dramatic performances of the oratorio on disc, operatic in the best sense of the word...Terfel simply gives the most exciting and vivid account of the prophet's part yet heard. His range, in terms of vocal register and dynamics, is huge; his expression, mighty and immediate, befits a man of Elijah's temperament...the new set should now, by a small measure, be the primary recommendation..." -AB, Gramophone
