Sir John Eliot Gardiner's uniquely personal version of Mendelssohn's Shakespearean masterpiece, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, Monteverdi Choir .
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).
