Tune of the Day: Nocturne by Mendelssohn

from “A Midsummer Night's Dream”

This calm Nocturne, with its famous French horn solo, was written by Felix Mendelssohn in 1842, as part of his incidental music to Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream. Today, it is often played as an independent piece, just like the popular Wedding March, also from the same work.

Thanks to Kaylee for suggesting this piece!
