Kirill Petrenko conducts Mendelssohn’s “Elijah”

“Strong, zealous and, yes, even bad-tempered, angry and brooding” – that is how Felix Mendelssohn envisioned the biblical prophet Elijah, the protagonist of his oratorio of the same name. The composer dramatically portrays a man who struggles to bring the people back to the true faith – in vain, as he realizes at the end. The outstanding baritone Christian Gerhaher will be heard as Elijah, conducted by Kirill Petrenko.
