Berlin Philharmonic: Mendelssohn’s Wedding March


Via: Youtube

The Berlin Philharmonic (Berliner Philharmoniker in German), Claudio Abbado [1933–2014] conducting, perform Felix Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March” in C major, opus 61, incidental music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a play that William Shakespeare completed around 1596. Mendelssohn wrote the music for this comedy in 1842, more than two decades after he wrote the Overture for it. This particular performance was recorded at the Berlin Philharmonie on May 19, 2013. This would be Abbado’s last concert with the orchestra.
