music for midsummer nights flac album
At two separate times, Felix Mendelssohn composed music for William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream (in German Ein Sommernachtstraum). First in 1826, near the start of his career, he wrote a concert overture (Op. 21). Later, in 1842, only a few years before his death, he wrote incidental music (Op. 61) for a production of the play, into which he incorporated the existing Overture. The incidental music includes the world-famous Wedding March.
Mendelssohn's incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream, Op. 61, was completed 16 years after he wrote the Overture, Op. 21. The consistency of style and musical unity between them belie the disparate dates of composition. The commission for the remaining music came from the King, for a Potsdam production of the play, one of several commissions for theatrical music Mendelssohn received while in this post. The producer of the play was Ludwig Tieck, one of the translators of the definitive German version of the play, the same version that the Mendelssohns had enjoyed and absorbed thoroughly as their own.

Felix Mendelssohn wrote his A Midsummer Night's Dream Overture when he was only 17, but he didn't finish the job until 16 years late. lmost unbelievably, Felix Mendelssohn wrote this zipping overture when he was just 17 years old. The wunderkind was sure to include all sorts of special effects too - ones that are completely in keeping with Shakespeare's original play. Strangely, it wasn't until 16 years later in 1842 that Mendelssohn wrote the incidental music for a production of the play, by which time you'd expect him to have evolved his compositional style somewhat. However, it's perfectly common to hear an orchestral suite of not only the Overture, but several highlights from the incidental music too. Mendelssohn News.
Mendelssohn's music, which portrays all manner of fairies, humans, and lovers crossing paths, is conducted by Previn with just the right light-hearted touch it needs. Andre Previn was at his freshest and most involved in 1976 when he made his acclaimed recording of Mendelssohn's complete Midsummer Night's Dream music, all 57 min. worth. It's become fashionable to include some spoken dialogue (as Abbado does on his Sony recording with the Berlin Phil. so that we can capture the melding of Mendelssohn with Shakespeare.

The presence of Annigoni's portrait of the young Elizabeth II fixes the production at the end of the 1950s, when A Midsummer Night's Dream was composed, and Charles Edwards's set and Sue Wilmington's costumes evoke that period and the claustrophobia of life in an all-boys school perfectly. In this recreated world, the "love juice" becomes reefers, and Iestyn Davies's creepy Oberon and Anna Christy's spinsterish Tytania teach at the school. Their tussle over the Changeling Boy, whom Oberon is clearly grooming as a replacement for the aging schoolboy Puck.
