John Nelson, Conducting
Created from “outstanding imagination and beauty” (The Guardian), Mendelssohn’s final and reverent composition is one of the most successful oratorios of the Victorian age. Music and opera lovers of all kinds will appreciate the dramatic treatment of the life of the prophet – summoning the people to righteousness, performing miracles, struggling against idol-worshippers, confronting a wicked queen, and rising to heaven in a fiery chariot. Conducted by one of America’s principal conductors and recipient of the Juilliard Irving Berlin conducting prize, John Nelson.
