Description

Midsummer Night's Dream / Manfred on DVD

In the Overture and Incidental Music to William Shakespeare's 'Midsummer Night's Dream,' Felix Mendelssohn brings the illustrious company of elves, lovers' passions and the solitude of the forest or a moonlit night to musical life. It became a model for other literary reflections in music like Peter Tchaikovsky's 'Manfred Symphony.' It's four movements- or "images," as the composer himself named them- capture the world-weariness of George Byron's 'Manfred: A Dramatic Poem' in music. Riccardo Chailly and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra awaken the musical imagery of both works in a colorful, fresh, and enchanting performance. This release was recorded live at the Concert Hall of KKL Luzem, Lucerne Festival in August of 2017.
