In the series Cervantes y la Música, which begins with a CD entitled Don Quijote al piano, we introduce today a new recording named Canciones para don Quijote. Many of the songs that could be heard at that time by the Alcalà born author are collected in his literary creations as an expression of the art of sound of his time, as well as a testimony of his love for music, whose indelible memory is maintained along all his literary production. As it can be seen, Soriano Fuertes, conventionally considered the first Spanish historian of music, reflected this fact some time later, in 1856, in his Historia de la música española: "There are people who say that Cervantes played vihuela and had a perfect background in music, even though this cannot be stated with complete certainty, we must believe that he was a keen lover of this art, as can be proved by the continued praise of music that he mentions in his works".
