Mendelssohn - Overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream
Schubert - Symphony No. 3 in D Major
Did you know?
Mendelssohn wrote the Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 1826, when he was only 17 years and 6 months old. The rest of the music, which includes the world-famous “Wedding March,” was composed in 1842 for a production of Shakespeare’s play, a few years before his death.
Schubert composed his Symphony No. 3 in D major in eight weeks, only a few months after his 18th birthday.
Beethoven was the first composer to use a piano trio in a concerto and has been the only composer to do so successfully since.
