Welcome to Day Four of Don Quixote Week on Kids Commute - classical music for kids!

Welcome to Day Three of 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 by German composer Richard Strauss.

Today, we'll hear a musical conversation between our hero, Don Quixote, and his squire, Sancho Panza.
