Don Quixote is one of Strauss’ finest and most imaginative tone poems. Sancho Panza (viola) and Don Quixote (cello) set off in search of the beautiful Dulcinea. They encounter windmills, scatter a flock of sheep and fly on a magic carpet – each episode vividly depicted in the music – before the gentle Don meets his knightly match and expires in one of the composer’s most affecting endings.
Brahms’ piano concerto is symphonic in scope, with a trenchant scherzo added to the usual concerto form. The beautiful slow movement features a prominent cello solo, and is followed by a graceful, Hungarian-flavoured finale.
