Shakespeare’s magic has inspired composers from the early Baroque to the present day. Purcell’s Suite from A Midsummer Night’s Dream evokes Shakespeare’s fairy kingdom, while Tchaikovsky’s lushly Romantic depiction of the sea brings the poet’s The Tempest to life. Nocturnal events are at the heart of works by Dallapiccola and Mendelssohn. Piccola musica notturna is an evocative portrayal of a summer night. Otherworldly events make Mendelssohn’s setting of Goethe’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht (The First Witches’ Night) a thrilling choral depiction of the night witches and demons.
