    The "Fantasie Concertante" bit looks like a pretty standard Arial based font to me, possibly with bold on, maybe Arial Black.

    The "Don Quixote" bit looks like arial but the tail on the letter Q isn't normal for arial. That should help identify it though. I'll have a look.

    It's not Arial. Very slightly fancy. Thought it might be Verdana but not fancy enough. Palatino?

    It could possibly be a Macintosh font seeing as they are quite common in publishing houses.

    It looks like it's a cross between Palatino and Arial!!

    Having trawled through loads of fonts an extremely close match is OPTIMUM BOLD.

    Don't know where it appeared from on my system, but I've found a link to a free download here.

    Could it be Trebuchet?
