Let the orchestral magic capture your imagination in these vividly programmatic works. Weber’s interplay of contrasting moods builds an expressive portrayal of the story of “The Marksman”, while Dvo?ák’s Golden Spinning Wheel employs his masterful instrumentation to draw clear details, and Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream Suite evokes forests and fairies. In Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, Britten assigns characters to the sections in the orchestra in a clever showcase of the different instruments that make up a modern orchestra.
