PROGRAM AND DESCRIPTION
TELEMANN: Don Quixote Suite
CHRISTIAN COLBERG: Viola Concerto
R. STRAUSS: Don Quixote
Fabled windmill-fighting knight Don Quixote inspires music of adventure and passion. Strauss' homage employs solo cello and viola along with a full orchestra (including a wind machine!) to depict Cervantes' colorful characters. CSO Principal Violist Christian Colberg performs his own Viola Concerto, which also traces the fantasies and triumphs of the chivalrous Spanish knight.
This concert is part of Series 3.

Cincinnati Music Hall, is a classical music performance hall in Cincinnati, Ohio, completed in 1878. It serves as the home for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Opera, May Festival Chorus, and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra.
In January 1975, it was recognized as a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The building was designed with a dual purpose – to house musical activities in its central auditorium and industrial exhibitions in its side wings. It is located at 1241 Elm Street, across from the historic Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine, minutes from the center of the downtown area.
