Mendelssohn-Hensel Overture in C Major

Mendelssohn A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Incidental Music
Thomas Søndergård Conductor
RSNO Youth Chorus
Patrick Barrett Director, RSNO Youth Choruses
To each word a warbling note… fairies, lovers and a bloke called Bottom with a donkey’s head. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare at his very best: and Felix Mendelssohn loved it so much that he transformed it into pure musical magic. Enjoy both words and music (including that Wedding March), plus a lively overture by Felix’s sister Fanny and the incredible RSNO Youth Chorus in a 21st-century celebration of the names that we give to birds, beasts and plants.
