To commence their 75th Anniversary season, Chester Music Society present ‘Elijah.’ The oratorio Elijah was ﬁrst performed in Birmingham in 1846 with the composer Mendelssohn conducting the English version that will be used for the concert. Mendelssohn composed the score and the German version in parallel, based on the works of Bach and Handel, but in a much more operatic style. The work was an instant success, with the Times critic writing: ‘Never was there a more complete triumph and never a more thorough and speedy recognition of a great work of art’.
