Midsummer Night’s Dream

Felix Mendelssohn, a great admirer of Bach and Handel, made a major contribution to sustaining their popularity during the 19th century. His own superb Midsummer Night’s Dream, inspired by Shakespeare’s fairy tale play, remains faithful to the Baroque spirit and the importance it attached to theatricality. The programme will also feature two pieces by Carl Maria von Weber, another musician well-versed in theatre.
