Kids Commute - Don Quixote Week! Tuesday

Kids Commute Episode 51 - Don Quixote Week! Don Quixote tilts at windmills.

Welcome to Don Quixote Week on IPR's Kids Commute - classical music for kids!

This week, our music will be all about Don Quixote, a crazy, but well-intentioned old gentleman who wishes he were a hero. He's a character from a novel written in Spain in the year 1615 by the author Miguel de Cervantes.

Almost three hundred years after de Cervantes wrote the book, a lot of its stories were set to music by German composer Richard Strauss. 

Today, Don Quixote tries to pick a fight with a bunch of nasty giants...that aren't actually giants at all.
