The World's Greatest Music
Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream: William Shakespeare's plays and poetry have inspired everything from artwork to movie adaptations. Find out which composers took inspiration from the great playwright, creating some brilliant classical music in its own right.
Written after his Symphony No. 7, between 1925-6, the incidental music to 'The Tempest' uses different instruments to represent different characters in the play. Other than his 1926 tone poem, 'Tapiola', he produced no more large-scale works for the rest of his life.
