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 with the help of a star-studded roster of special guests: Nell Snaidas, soprano; Glen Velez, percussion; Charles Weaver, guitar; Erik Schmalz, sackbut and the men of The Rose Ensemble.

Original support for The Musical World of Don Quixote was provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Philadelphia.
