A gaunt man in homemade armor tilts at a windmill, battles a flock of sheep, and dreams of love. Yo-Yo Ma’s cello takes on the “role” of the hapless Don Quixote in Strauss’s magnificent tone poem. The tale’s escapades are presented in brilliant orchestral colors, including that flock of combative sheep bleating with fluttering brass. Before the Don saddles his aged, wayward steed, there’s the sturm und drang of a youthful Mozart symphony and a new work by Jörg Widmann.
