TELEMANN: Don Quixote Suite CHRISTIAN COLBERG: Viola Concerto R. STRAUSS: Don Quixote Concert Duration: Approx. 2 hours, 5 minutes with intermission. What’s interesting about this concert: • A program inspired by the hero of Miguel de Cervantes’ epic Spanish novel. • Having lost his mind reading chivalrous romances, a nobleman assumes the persona of Don Quixote de la Mancha and, along with sidekick Sancho Panza, sets on quests for glory. • Richard Strauss’ work employs cello and viola soloists to represent the title hero and his wise-cracking squire, along with full orchestra and wind machine. • Puerto Rican composer, and CSO Principal Viola, Christian Colberg, performs his own Viola Concerto.
