At two separate times, Felix Mendelssohn composed music for William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream (in German Ein Sommernachtstraum). First in 1826, near the start of his career, he wrote a concert overture (Op. 21). Later, in 1842, only a few years before his death, he wrote incidental music (Op. 61) for a production of the play, into which he incorporated the existing Overture. The incidental music includes the world-famous Wedding March.
Mendelssohn’s music to Midsummernight’s Dream, written in his eighteenth year, still remains the exemplar for all fairy music. The lovely nocturne, as arranged by Moszkowski, makes a beautiful piano number, retaining all the charm of the original. This score to a professionally engraved, high-quality arrangement of Mendelssohn's wedding march for string quartet is offered free of charge as a special promotion courtesy of the arranger (Yoon Jae Lee) and publisher (Ondine Press). This is an abridged version of the march intended for use as a recessional during matrimonial ceremonies.

Inspired by William Shakespeare 's comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream, Felix Mendelssohn completed his famous eponymous Overture in 1826. The stunning accomplishment the Overture represents testifiies not only to the creative maturity of the seventeen-year-old composer, but also to Mendelssohn 's music as the embodiment of the Romantic ideal of the marriage of music and poetry. A passionate literary scholar, Mendelssohn was particularly bewitched by the works of Shakespeare, whose collected plays had been translated into German in 1801. The Overture exemplifies Mendelssohn 's ability to create extraordinarily imaginative and atmospheric music while remaining within the context of traditional harmonic and formal structure. Mendelssohn masterfully translates the three worlds (one of which is supernatural) of the comedy's universe into music of singular distinction.
