Ulster Hall 34 Bedford Street, Belfast,

A detailed exploration of the spectacular exploits of the insane Don.

Richard Strauss set of ‘Fantastic Variations’ is by far the most elaborate and detailed exploration of the spectacular exploits of the insane Don. The character of Don Quixote is played out by a cello solo in writing that is full of nobility, grace and gorgeous singing lines.


It is a tour de force, using every inch of the cellist’s abilities, both technical and emotional – no one better to take on the role than the wonderful Alisa Weilerstein!
