A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM7:30pm Saturday 21 April 2018 – Federation Concert Hall
SAINT-SAËNS Piano Concerto No. 2
MENDELSSOHN A Midsummer Night's Dream
Mendelssohn grew up in a literature-loving household. Goethe was a friend of the family and the works of Shakespeare were known and loved. Mendelssohn’s miraculous music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream captures the lightness and grace, heartache and humour of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy. Hear it in full in this enchanting concert.
Mendelssohn’s mercurial “fairy music” finds an echo in the feather-light middle movement of Saint-Saëns’ delectable Piano Concerto No 2. The outer movements offer high drama and dazzling pianism. The brilliant Howard Shelley appears in the dual role of conductor and soloist.
