Mendelssohn’s “Elijah” with Seiji Ozawa, Matthias Goerne and Annette Dasch
For many, the oratorio Elijah is the pinnacle of Mendelssohn’s oeuvre. Not only because of the rousing choruses and stunningly beautiful arias, but above all the dramatic power of the work, which is occasionally referred to as “Mendelssohn’s unwritten opera”. In this recording, Seiji Ozawa conducts a superb ensemble with Matthias Goerne in the title role, along with Annette Dasch, Anthony Dean and Nathalie Stutzmann.
