The Ingenious Knight of La Mancha and his Cultural Legacy: Four Centuries of Creativity Inspired by Don Quixote: (lecture 3 of 4)
Judah Adashi, composer and Peabody Institute faculty member
Listening to Don Quixote: Dr. Adashi offers an overview of musical works inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote, with a special emphasis on three compositions: Richard Strauss's symphonic tone poem Don Quixote (1897); the musical Man of La Mancha (1965), with music by Mitch Leigh; and Peabody alumna Amy Beth Kirsten's Quixote (2017). Dr. Adashi's talk will focus on the different ways in which these composers have translated Cervantes' novel into compelling music for both the stage and the concert hall.
