A dream that will last forever.

I featured two great composers yesterday, Mendelssohn and Bruch, and will continue today with Felix Mendelssohn and his great overture to "A Midsummer Night's Dream."  

Mendelssohn composed this piece at the age of 17 and one music historian called this "the greatest marvel of early maturity that the world has ever seen in music".

It was written as a concert overture, not associated with any performance of the play.  I think you will see why Mendelssohn is one of my favorite composers after listening to this beautiful piece.  

Also, to honor my daughter, Ebony, who got married April of this year, I will give you Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" from "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
