At the heart of this concert are the tragicomic hero Don Quixote and his decrepit horse Rosinante. Even though the source novel by Miguel de Cervantes is more than 400 years old, the story of the «Knight of the Sad Countenance» has lost none of its fascination: Many artists have found inspiration in the figure of Don Quixote. Supported by his servant Sancho Panza, he fights to this day against windmills. Musically, the crusade leads through the sound-worlds of Richard Strauss and his fellow composers.
