Wedding March - Op. 61, No. 9 from A Midsummer Night's Dream (Hochzeitsmarsch). By Felix Bartholdy Mendelssohn (1809-1847). Arranged by Wolfgang Birtel. For Piano Accompaniment, Violoncello. Schott. Softcover. 12 pages. Schott Music #ED09933. Published by Schott Music (HL.49019127).
A wedding without a famous wedding march – unimaginable! Wagner's 'Bridal Chorus' from 'Lohengrin' and Mendelssohn's 'Wedding March' from the incidental music of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' vie for the favour of bridal couples and wedding parties. If, however, the music shall be festive, Mendelssohn's background music for the wedding ceremony remains first choice. In order that the march cannot only be performed with the organ but also with a melodic instrument with piano (or organ) accompaniment, the present editions provide easy-to-play arrangements.
