A rare chance to hear Shakespeare's play and Mendelssohn's complete incidental music for it in its intended context, specially recorded in the Tudor setting of the Middle Temple Hall in London.
Mendelssohn first visited London in 1829, as a precocious 20-year-old. A virtuoso pianist and organist, his music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, written when he was still a teenager, had signalled that his was a special talent. As one of the most highly educated figures in classical music, he first came to Britain as part of an educational grand tour. Over the next 18 years, he made 10 further trips to this country, becoming a favourite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and finding the inspiration to write the Hebrides Overture, the Scottish symphony, and the great oratorio Elijah. Mendelssohn introduced British musicians and their audiences to fresh ideas – revivals of Bach’s great Passions and even how to play under the conductor’s remarkable new tool – the baton. In short, Mendelssohn plugged Britain into the current of European musical thought and in doing so made a lasting impact on our musical life.
Tim Carroll introduces his production in conversation with Louise Fryer.
