Berliner Philharmoniker

Kirill Petrenko conducts Mendelssohn’s “Elias”


Herbert-von-Karajan-Str. 1, 10785 Berlin


“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. Moving arias and vocal scenes as well as powerful choral writing make Mendelssohn’s oratorio one of the greatest religious works of the Romantic period. The outstanding baritone Christian Gerhaher will be heard as Elijah, conducted by Kirill Petrenko.
