Midsummer Romance

Arthur Rackham MND

Lord, what fools these mortals be!

 

As Mid­sum­mer Night (and a Super Moon) has just passed, Radio Riel pays trib­ute to it with a pro­gram of music on our Main stream from the Roman­tic era with a focus on the music of Felix Mendelssohn.

Mendelssohn’s Over­ture and Inci­den­tal Music for William Shake­speare’s A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream is prob­a­bly the best known, and most loved, musi­cal ren­di­tion of the Bard’s play.

Today’s pro­gram fea­tures music from Mendelssohn’s A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream in both Eng­lish and Ger­man, as well as some of his Cham­ber works and his Songs With­out Words. Addi­tion­al­ly you will hear music from oth­er com­posers of the Roman­tic era today, such as Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Borodin, Par­ry, Schu­mann and more.


Today’s pro­gram is pre­sent­ed by Gabrielle Riel. To lis­ten, click here to start your play­er . If you are in the Unit­ed States, please use the fol­low­ing link: http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in .
