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.
A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595/96.

The hints of Weber in the score come through unusually clearly, and the balance and control in the slower pieces (sample the gorgeous "Nocturne," track 7) are impressive indeed.
It also provides a wonderful workout for all the sections of the LFO – gossamer-light strings in the overture, the deftest woodwind in the scherzo, fabulously warm, secure brass in the nocturne and the final wedding march – and confirmation that the orchestra’s chamber-music-like attention to detail and exquisite ensemble remain intact. But it’s the Manfred Symphony that shows the qualities of the new partnership at its most powerfully persuasive.
Mendelssohn, who adored Shakespeare’s writings, composed his concert overture based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 1827 at the young age of 17. Music scholar George Grove described it as 'the greatest marvel of early maturity that the world has ever seen in music.
