Wedding March, from A Midsummer Night’s Dream (violin viola duo)
Title: Wedding March, from A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Composer: Felix Mendelssohn, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Viola
Printout: 2 pages
Note: This is a must-have piece for wedding musicians. In an interesting musicalogical twist, Mendelssohn’s Wedding March from the incidental music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which is most often used as a wedding recessional, serves as a processional in the play, whereas Wagner’s Bridal Chorus, which serves almost exclusively as a processional, is played after the ceremony in the opera. This setting includes the first two sections of the march.
