SIR THOMAS BEECHAM & ‘FAUST’ Ballet Music by Charles Gounod

This wonderfully melodic ballet music is given a superb performance by Beecham & the Royal philharmonic, the orchestra he had founded during 1946. In their time, surely Sir Thomas & Pierre Monteux where inimitable here.

Felix Mendelssohn: A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Overture, Op. 61



At separate times, Felix Mendelssohn composed music for William Shakespeare’s play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In 1826, near the start of his career, Mendelssohn wrote a concert overture (Op. 21). 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
