The Lost Chord: September 19 - Casals' Pals

casals_cello_pipe.jpg

Pablo Casals was a giant of an artist and of a man.  He put his career on hold to stand up to Franco.  He rediscovered the Bach cello suites.  He played for 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.  Pau takes a bow, this Sunday at 10 pm.
