Description
Inspired by Handel and J.S. Bach, Felix Mendelssohn wrote his oratorio Elias ("Elijah") in a white heat, and its 1846 premiere in Birmingham, Great Britain was a resounding triumph. Mendelssohn renders the story of the prophet Elijah's duel with the prophets of Baal and his ascension to heaven in a fiery chariot with an appropriate mixture of pathos and drama; the composer took great care to depict the complex, even contradictory aspects of Elijah's personality. A protégé of the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Doris Hagel leads the Kantorei der Schlosskirche Weilburg and Capella Weilburgensis in this 2011 recording, which includes the libretto in English translation.
