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 Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony. Its 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 colourful, fresh and enchanting performance.

Recorded live at the Concert Hall of KKL Luzern, Lucerne Festival, August 2017
