Music Monday: Mendelssohn-Bartholdy

My music playlist for work (editing science articles) is largely classical (small-c classical, because there is a heaping helping of Baroque, Romantic, and Modern in there, as well as big-c Classical).

Today was an intense day of editing thanks to computer blow-ups and the only thing that took the edge off was Mendelssohn-Bartholdy's Overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Have you heard it before? Probably not, unless you're a fellow orch dork/bando/whatever. You've heard the Wedding March from this set of pieces, for sure, though. Which is a shame, because the Overture is lovely and not half as overplayed.
