During Richard Strauss' life Herbert von Karajan was one of the pioneers who championed with great enthusiasm the oeuvre of the composer from Garmisch. Strauss listened with great satisfaction to a performance by Karajan and afterwards, with a twinkle in his eye, called him a "rascal." Karajan's continued devotedness to Strauss' works knows no comparison. He has left us with a wealth of first-class recordings made over the decades – from crackling shellac right up to the introduction of digital technology. The Fantastic Variations on a Theme of Knightly Character, or just Don Quixote for short, bring together highly varied contrasts in a complex score. Ten variations, brimming over with pictorial music, relate the dramatic experiences of the "Knight of mournful countenance" and his rustic squire: their ambling departure into the world, bitter combat and heroic triumph over the giant windmills, and finally understanding and a return homewards from the journey within himself.
