About this Recording


The five works that make up this recording were all inspired by Cervantes’ masterpiece Don Quijote de la Mancha. Barbieri’s incidental music was composed as part of the first official commemoration, in 1861, of the anniversary of Cervantes’ death. Rodrigo’s symphonic poem Ausencias de Dulcinea (Dulcinea’s Absence), scored unusuallyfor four voices and orchestra, is characterised by constant changes of mood and tempo to express the shifts between the heroic and the romantic. The most recent work on this disc, a miniature suite from Jorge Fernández Guerra’s soundtrack, Tres momentos de Don Quichotte, for G.W. Pabst’s 1933 silent movie, has been desribed by the composer as “idealised cinematographic music… achieving moments of great lyricism”.
