Cape Symphony Concert to Feature Music Inspired by ‘Don Quixote’

HYANNIS – The Cape Symphony will take to the stage next month for a concert featuring music by composers inspired by the novel “Don Quixote.”

Impressions of Don Quixote will be presented April 7 and 8 at the Barnstable Performing Arts Center in Hyannis.

The concert will feature Grammy-award winning cellist Zuill Bailey, along with solos from Cape Symphony orchestra principals.

Bailey will be joined by New Bedford-based baritone Philip Lima and the orchestra to tell the story of “The Man from La Mancha” as explored by composers Richard Strauss, Maurice Ravel and Georg Philipp Telemann.

Cape Symphony Artistic Director and Conductor Jung-Ho Pak says the Don Quixote tone poem by Strauss is one of the most difficult and colorful pieces the symphony has ever presented and that it is like an opera for the orchestra.

The Saturday performance is at 7:30 p.m. and the Sunday show is 3 p.m.
