Katherine ventures into 18th and 19th century Europe to discover three of the great composers of the Classical Era – Haydn, Schubert and Mendelssohn.
One of the great composers of the early 19th century, Mendelssohn wrote an overture for Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the age of 17 but waited another 16 years before completing more incidental music for the play. It was worth the wait though because A Midsummer Night’s Dream contains possibly Mendelssohn’s most popular music. Photo: Toby Melville/PA Archive/Press Association Images
