Welcome to Don Quixote Week on IPR's Kids Commute - classical music for kids!
This week, our music will be all about Don Quixote, a crazy, but well-intentioned old gentleman who wishes he were a hero. He's a character from a novel written in Spain in the year 1615 by the author Miguel de Cervantes.
Almost three hundred years after de Cervantes wrote the book, a lot of its stories were set to music in a tone poem by German composer Richard Strauss.
Today, we'll meet the star of our week, Don Quixote himself.
