內容簡介

Following a series of acclaimed recordings of 19th-century music including complete cycles of the
symphonies by Schubert and Schumann, Thomas Dausgaard and his Swedish Chamber
Orchestra turn to Felix Mendelssohn. The team's latest offering unites three of the composer's four
celebrated concert overtures, written between 1826 and 1835 and setting new standards for this
emerging genre: Mendelssohn's overtures are also tone poems, combining a Classical conception
with Romantic expressivity. The earliest of the three – A Midsummer Night's Dream –
Mendelssohn composed at the age of seventeen, and his sister Fanny later remarked how
Shakespeare's play had been a constant presence at their home, and 'how at various ages we had
read all the different roles, from Peaseblossom to Hermia and Helena…' The overture immediately
became one of Mendelssohn's signature pieces, and seventeen years later he returned to it,
composing additional incidental music for a stage production of the play. Written for soloists,
women's choir and orchestra, the complete Midsummer Night score is included here. The disc opens
with the last of the four overtures to be composed, however: The Fair Melusine, which Mendelssohn
wrote after having heard an opera based on the old French tale of the water spirit Melusine and her
sad fate. Actively disliking the opera, Mendelssohn was provoked into his own musical setting of the
subject matter in the form of a concert overture. Water – and its depiction in music – also plays an
important role in The Hebrides, the closing work on the present recording. Inspired by the poems by
Ossian – which captured the imagination of an entire generation at the beginning of the Romantic era
– Mendelssohn visited Scotland and the Hebrides in 1829, and already during this trip he sent a
postcard to his family, with the overture's famous opening written down in a four-part setting.
