Mendelssohn: Elijah, 1846

Paul Mccreesh

At the time of its first performances in 1846, Elijah was hailed as one of the great oratorios alongside Handel’s ‘Messiah’. It tells the story of the prophet with imposing grandeur, inspirational orchestration and beautiful arias, recitatives and choruses. This mighty piece requires even mightier orchestral and choral forces and the Gabrieli singers are reinforced by the talented Gabrieli Young Singers' Scheme and the Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir. This recording sees over 440 musicians taking part, including 92 string players and over 300 singers.
