Mendelssohn's Oveture To A Midsummer Night's Dream: The Bottom Line.

 

A Midsummer Night's Dream is Shakespeare's most magical play. In 1826, it enchanted seventeen-year-old German composer Felix Mendelssohn and inspired him to compose a concert overture. Mendelssohn’s masterly crafted music infuses the narrative with fantasy and intrigue: it conjures up the kingdom of the fairies, while following humans, high and low, in the magic wood. Is there a donkey in this overture? Most definitely yes!
