Don Quixote enthusiast Nick Senger over at Literary Compass has made some suggestions of musical accompaniment for reading DQ. One of the pieces he mentions is the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquín Rodrigo (1902-1999). It just so happens that I have a copy of it, so, with apologies to Julian Bream and RCA, I’d like to post the famous adagio movement (click to listen). If this piece of music doesn’t transport you to another place I don’t know what will!
