Customer Reviews

A Midsummer not to be missed...

This recording is one of the most wonderfully conceived concepts of this composition yet. Seiji Ozawa bringing Mendelssohn to life, and then to add Dame Judi Dench (amongst other abilities, one of the world's most brilliant verse speakers), it just doesn't get any better than this!! It is a perfect blend of exquisite musical performance and spoken verse, and is a most perfect exhibition of the magic of Shakespeare as an inspiration of musical genius.

Unfortunately iTunes has it wrong. This is the Boston Symphony Orchestra with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus.

Very good

Just listen to #8, No. 7 Notturno. That is definitly the most calm, yet powerful song in the album. Besides the fact that there are short speeches of lines in the play, the music makes up for it. However, the words themselves are amazing. I recomend this album to anyone who likes classical music, and/or is a Shakespeare fanatic (which I highly doubt there are people who are crazy for Shakespeare)
