Mills Concert Hall, Mosse Humanities Building
Cervantes' "Don Quixote," regarded as the first truly modern novel, explored an emerging sense that humans have a central role to play in the universe. This iconic work provides the narrative arc of Piffaro's program, "The Musical World of Don Quixote," which offers a musical parallel, taking listeners into the sound world of the Spanish golden age. Piffaro recreates the "soundtrack" to one of the best stories ever written.
