A dramatic new year

Mendelssohn on Elijah:  “I imagined Elijah as a real prophet through and through, of the kind we could really do with today: Strong, zealous and, yes, even bad-tempered, angry and brooding—in contrast to the riff-raff, whether of the court or the people, and indeed in contrast to almost the whole world—and yet borne aloft as if on angels’ wings.”.

How about this for a taster of Elijah before our Spring Concert on April 9th in the National Concert Hall
