CLASSICAL | The Quest for Don Quixote 

Don Quixote is not only a great literary character, he has also done nicely as an inspiration for music — and not just "Man of La Mancha," either. This Sunday, First Muse Chamber Music explores three works inspired by Cervantes' Knight of the Woeful Countenance. Telemann's "Don Quichotte" suite is a delightful Baroque confection drawing on scenes and characters from Cervantes, and Ravel's "Don Quichotte à Dulcinée" is a dashing, touching song cycle inspired by the knight's love for his "lady" Dulcinea. Then comes a truly quixotic undertaking: Richard Strauss's tone poem "Don Quixote," whose massive orchestration has been refined down to a chamber sextet featuring RPO players. Along with the music, there will be readings from "Don Quixote."

First Muse Chamber Music presents "The Quest for Don Quixote," Sunday, May 18, at the First Unitarian Church, 220 S. Winton Road. 7:30 p.m. $5-$15, $30 families. Firstmuse.org.
