Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847): A Midsummer Night’s Dream, op. 21/61

 

William Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream took on a perfect musical form in the hands of Felix Mendelssohn. The play’s music is full of familiar melodies and it is crowned by the beloved wedding march. Nicke Lignell, who narrates the concert, takes us into the twists and turns of the magical story. The Vaasa City Orchestra, led by its chief conductor Tomas Djupsjöbacka, still returns to the atmosphere of summer in the opening concert of the season and enjoys its afterglow to the fullest.

Fifth act, first scene:

Theseus:

Say, what abridgement have you for this evening?

What masque? What Music? How shall we beguile the lazy time, if not with some delight?

 

Joy, gentle friends

Joy and fresh days of love!

Accompany your hearts!
