    SCHUBERT Stabat Mater D. 383
    MENDELSSOHN Midsummer night’s dream

For its second concert of the season, the Dijon Bourgogne Orchestra will focus on the seasons! What could be more comforting in the thick of winter than to dream of summer and its propitious nights full of adventurous fantasy? Inspired by Shakespeare’s comedy, the overture composed by the young Mendelssohn in 1826 is a miracle of poetry and the German Romantic fascination for the marvels associated with night. Some 15 years later, the composer would add music for stage performances of the piece. While the Wedding March has become a  required central element of all matrimonial ceremonies, the other numbers from the score and the poetry and youthful freshness of the overture are every bit as successful. The Stabat Mater composed on a German text by a 19-year-old Schubert is one of his most beautiful accomplishments in the domain of religious music.
