Midsummer Romance

Lord, what fools these mortals be!


As Mid­sum­mer Night is upon us, 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.

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at http://main.radioriel.org. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
