Notes & Reviews:
Mendelssohn's oratorio 'Paulus' - besides the great oratorios of Handel and Haydn, and Bach's Passions - counts among the most important works in the history of the genre, along with his own 'Elijah.' 'Paulus' was composed between 1834 and 1836, and the premiere took place in 1836 in Dusseldorf, bringing Mendelssohn his first European fame.
