Woof, woof, my dear friends. Today is Sunday and we have a incredible piece to enjoy, Richard Strauss’ Don Quixote.

The work was composed for cello, viola and large orchestra. Subtitled Fantastic Variations on a Theme of Knightly Character, the work is based on Cervante’s novel Don Quijote de la Mancha (Don Quixote). The premiere took place in Cologne on 8 March 1898, with Friedrich Grützmacher as the cello soloist and Franz Wüllner as the conductor.

45 minutes of music, stories and feelings. I love Strauss. The illustrations were drawn by Gustave Doré.
