Notes & Reviews:

"Naxos has assembled an intriguingly diverse selection of music inspired by Don Quixote. The range of styles represented here dictate that the CD will be of most interest to listeners with broadly eclectic tastes because the music ranges from typically Romantic music from the mid-nineteenth century to very challenging and uncompromising modernism. For the listener with open ears, all of the pieces contribute something to an understanding of Don Quixote -- the novel is so universal in its humanism and so catholic in the range of experience it describes that no single aesthetic could adequately address it... The performances by Orquesta del la Comunidad de Madrid, conducted by Jose Ramon Encinar, are consistently lively and committed, as persuasive in Francisco Asenjo Barbieri's 1861 Don Quijote as in Roman's bleak existential soundscape. Naxos' sound is clean and full." -All Music
