Mendelssohn’s epic oratorio is a moving musical tribute to the prophet who was drawn up to Heaven in a whirlwind. Composed in the spirit of Bach and Handel, the work clearly reflects Mendelssohn’s own genius, combining vivid and dramatic sound-pictures of oceans, earthquakes, fires, and the resurrection of the dead. Scored for four vocal soloists, boy soprano, full symphony, and a large chorus, this performance features the well-known talents of the University Music Society Choral Union and the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, all under the baton of Jerry Blackstone.
