Since its early 17th-century publication, El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha has captivated composers of music throughout the West. In this project, I explore why the novel has for so long served as a source of inspiration to composers. I look at the way in which Don Quijote was interpreted in various European countries and how this influenced music composed there. Finally, I look at the broader impact that Don Quijote had on Western concert music.
