The Illumination draws upon the reflection of man at the end of his life for its creative direction. Simple, yet beautiful melodic statements combined with lush harmonies will have the audience reflecting upon the entire story as Don Quixote did at the end of his journey. Quotes from the previous three movements tie the creative work together leading to the glorious ascension into the light. Emotionally powerful, this final movement of "Symphony No. 3: Don Quixote" will bring the audience to their feet celebrating that small bit of Don Quixote that lives in all of us.
