The music is performed beautifully. Bryn Terfel is at his best and the chorus pieces are great. The director has brought out Mendelssohn in a most uplifting manner. It is a great musical work and it delights the listener to beauty with some historic and biblical value.

So Passionate

Bryn Terfel grips your heart in this fantastic Mendelssohn oratorio, and Renee Fleming truly makes the passion of the story come to life. With the addition of an excellent and powerful chorus and orchestra, you have one of the best performances of Elijah I have ever heard. They certainly set a high standard.

So good apart from the overwhelming and persistent brass.

I love virtually everything about the resurgence of early instrumental performance techniques, especially the revelatory impact they have on banner works like Elijah among a multitude of other works.
I spent a lot of time getting to know this recording in advance of my own performances of Elijah because I truly love so much of it. I don't know if it was the placement of the brass in relation to the microphones but my God does the edgy sound of these instruments dominate this recording. The nice thing about early music brass is that you can get that edgy sound as a color option without obliterating the rest of the ensemble.
Somehow, however either the conductor or the recording engineer allows the 4th horn player among other brass players a larger role in this recording than Bryn Terfel at times. I find it tiring to listen to this in one sitting because of the overwhelming presence of the brass in almost every number they are is playing.
Maybe your speakers won't bring this blemish out as it did mine. If so, you are in for a taut and extremely emotional rendering of this masterpiece. Bryn Terfel takes the role of Elijah to another place entirely. There is some coarse singing by some of the other soloists at various points but on the whole very compelling. The chorus is very well balanced with each section delivering extra horsepower in both volume and articulation when required for a stirring effect.

Operatic baritone/bass Bryn Terfel forged an acclaimed career based not only upon his rich, booming voice, but also upon his ability to bring abundant personal charisma and enthusiasm to his stage roles. Terfel grew up singing traditional folk songs from his native Wales and entered London's Guildhall School of Music in 1984. He graduated in 1989 and debuted at the Welsh National Opera the following year, performing the role of Guglielmo in Cosi Fan Tutte. 1992 saw Terfel's international breakthrough...
