Perchance to dream: when classical composers closed their eyes, they discovered new realms of enchanted colour. Berlioz imagined Shakespeare’s Queen Mab in music that sounds like it’s written with the point of a needle. Respighi conjured up the sights and scents of his beloved Rome. And the modern French master Henri Dutilleux simply soared. His Violin Concerto might be one of the loveliest musical creations of the last half-century, and this Korean premiere is performed by one of its supreme champions, the great Renaud Capuçon. Then Thierry Fischer leads the celebrations on Mendelssohn’s ever-fresh music for Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream: birthplace of the world’s most famous Wedding March!
