TELEMANN: Don Quixote Suite
CHRISTIAN COLBERG: Viola Concerto
R. STRAUSS: Don Quixote
Fabled windmill-fighting knight Don Quixote inspires music of adventure and passion. Strauss' homage employs solo cello and viola along with a full orchestra (including a wind machine!) to depict Cervantes' colorful characters. CSO Principal Violist Christian Colberg performs his own Viola Concerto, which also traces the fantasies and triumphs of the chivalrous Spanish knight.
This concert is part of Series 3.
