Mendelssohn's Oratorio Elijah
Born two hundred years ago, composer Mendelssohn fell in love with C.cile, daughter of a clergyman, on a professional engagement to Frankfort, and an engagement of another kind soon followed. At the age of twenty nine, a solemn, moving masterpiece—Elijah the oratorio, became the witness of his marriage, and was since listed as one of the three best oratorios in musical history, along with Messiah of Handel and The Creation of Haydn. The name Elijah, in Hebrew, means “My God, Jehovah is he;” under the baton of conductor Jahja Ling, it implies that interpreting Elijah is to interpret the words of God. The tender, thick alto as the motherly love of God whereas the sonorous tenor as ordeals of earthquake, raging fire and towering waves interlace, re-displaying the epic of Elijah the prophet.
