RLPO Note:

Battling windmills, flying horses and a very angry herd of sheep…when Richard Strauss turned the tale of Don Quixote into music, he didn’t stint on the special effects! Music doesn’t get much funnier – or warmer – than this, and with the Orchestra’s own Jonathan Aasgaard playing the daft old knight today, it’s a fantastic finale to a whole afternoon of musical adventures, whether Beethoven’s drama of courage and freedom, or Hindemith’s anarchic musical workout based on Weber’s Turandot overture theme. Vasily Petrenko loves it, and you will too.
