Alleluia, Op 25
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Alleluia, Op 25, appeared in 1844 in the Central Bureau of music. Alkan had been back on the scene for about a year and he seems to have written the work at the time of a concert given in the Salons Erard on 20 April 1844. Although it was conceived as a concert piece, Opus 25 takes us into a religious dimension which is ever present in the music of its maker. Let us remember that ‘alleluia’ means ‘Praise ye the Lord’, an exclamation which Alkan joyously highlights in this work which peals with enthusiasm and fervour.
