The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote: Words and Music from the Time of Cervantes

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 8 pm at the Sheldon Concert Hall

“—-Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear the ever-popular Los Angeles Guitar Quartet in a totally new way: on Wednesday, October 19, they will present an innovative theatrical/musical work inspired by the timeless DON QUIXOTE!

—-With the brilliant comedian Phil Proctor (of Firesign Theatre fame), they’ll perform a three-act, multi-media show that illuminates the humor, pathos and surrealism of Cervantes’ novel.

—-Accompanying the virtuoso narrative (Mr. Proctor will portray more than a dozen characters) LAGQ will play William Kanengiser’s ingenious arrangements of Spanish Renaissance music, featuring many “greatest hits” of the Golden Age. In addition to this ambitious stage production, LAGQ will  also play some of their concert favorites, including Rossini’s “Barber of Seville” and Bizet’s “Carmen.”

—-Be a part of history!  The performance will be videotaped by Mel Bay Records for release as a commercial DVD.

    Folks, I’ve seen and heard this program live in Austin, Texas. Kanegiser’s arrangements of the music are fantastic–he’s fleshed out solo music into full quartet music! Anyone with a literary bent will love this unique presentation! And besides, the Rossini and music from Carmen are themselves worth the trip to come hear the LAGQ live in St. Louis!
