The Lost Chord: September 15 – Casals’ Pals
Pablo Casals was a giant-of-an-artist and of a man. He stood up to the Franco regime and refused to perform in countries that recognized Franco’s authority. He rediscovered the Bach cello suites. He played for both Queen Victoria and John F. Kennedy. He founded the Prades Festival. He established the Puerto Rico Symphony and Conservatory. He gave master classes, conducted and recorded at Marlboro. He was even a talented composer. Is it any wonder so many of his colleagues were moved to write music for him? Tune in to hear works dedicated to Casals by Vaughan Williams, Tovey and Schoenberg, this Sunday at 10 pm.
