The next performance of the Baseler Bach-Chor choir is coming up soon. On two nights in November (15 and 16) they will have a concert featuring
“Paulus”, a beautiful oratorio by Mendelssohn. Of course, it won’t be sung in English, but Mendelssohn had quite strong links to Britain, and his ten visits to Britain – during which many of his major works were premiered – form an important part of his adult career.
The English premiere of “St Paul” was in Liverpool on 3 October 1836, and it was also performed at the Birmingham Triennial Music Festival. The first performance in the United States was in Boston on March 14, 1837.
