Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Das Märchen von der schönen Melusine
Gabriel Fauré, Pélleas et Mélisande Suite op.80
Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Sinfonia n. 3 Op. 56 “Scozzese”
The tale of the beautiful Melusina, a fantastic creature half girl and half fish, struck the romantic soul of Mendelssohn, who dedicated the most perfect of his overtures to her. Another fictional story – the one between Pelléas and Mélisande – is the background to a touching page by Fauré. The Scottish Symphony, on the other hand, was born from the suggestions of a journey.
