  • St. Paul, a fierce persecutor of Christians who became one of the most influential personalities of Christianity, is the central figure of Mendelssohn's great oratory Paulus. A well-known enthusiast of the music written by the baroque masters, the brilliant German composer used the monumental oratories of Bach and Händel as a reference, without emulating them. This is an exciting account of the life of Saul of Tarsus since the time of the first martyrs, including the miracle of conversion on the road to Damascus and a life devoted to preaching. And if Paul's writings are an important part of the Bible and one of the fundamental pillars of the Christian faith, Mendelssohn's music is also a milestone in the history of music. A work that combines depth and clarity, with beautiful chorales that frame the dramatic tension entrusted to a quartet of internationally renowned soloists.
