Elijah (German: Elias), Op. 70, MWV A 25, is an oratorio written by Felix Mendelssohn. It premiered in 1846 at the Birmingham Festival. It depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet Elijah, taken from the books 1 Kings and 2 Kings of the Old Testament. This piece was composed in the spirit of Mendelssohn's Baroque predecessors Bach and Handel, whose music he loved
Mendelssohn continued to be based in Germany, where in 1843 he helped set up the Leipzig Conservatory, but his greatest musical success came in 1846 with the premiere of his oratorio Elijah in Birmingham. He was quite overwhelmed by the warmth and enthusiasm of the audience that night: "No work of mine ever went so admirably at its first performance," he reported, "nor was received with such enthusiasm by both the musicians and the audience alike as this oratorio. No fewer than four choruses and four arias were encored!" Mendelssohn News.
Mendelssohn’s seven years at the helm of the Gewandhaus set the standard for modern orchestral training and repertoire. Under his enlightened direction (he was still only 25 at the time) the Leipzigers became a truly unified, virtuoso body of players, fanned out around him in the modern fashion, meticulously balanced and fine-tuned. Mendelssohn vastly expanded the orchestra’s repertoire to include not only the latest masterpieces hot off the press (some of them his own), but the great works of yesteryear from Bach onwards.
Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel’s Childhood And Early Life. Fanny Mendelssohn was born into a Jewish family and was the oldest of four children. Her parents had distinguished lineage - her father Abraham Mendelssohn was the son of philosopher Moses Mendelssohn and her mother Lea, née Salomon, was the granddaughter of the entrepreneur Daniel Itzig. But her Jewish parents did not bring her up as Jewish and she never practiced Judaism, but she retained the cultural values of liberal Judaism. Fanny Mendelssohn composed 466 pieces of music including over 250 songs, 125 piano works, four cantatas, and much instrumental chamber music, as well as choral works. These artistic compositions also comprise of a piano trio and several books of solo piano pieces and songs. A number of her songs were originally published under Felix's name in his opus 8 and 9 collections.
