Almost everyone knows the festive Wedding March from Mendelssohn’s music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Schubert’s lilting entr’acte to Act III of Rosamunde. The complete incidental music to these plays, however, is unjustly neglected. Their sequences of instrumental pieces, dance, vocal and choral movements lead us into the magical worlds of sprites and knights. Marc Minkowski, directing the RIAS Kammerchor and the Karajan Academy, presents a selection of the most beautiful pieces from both works.
