Gaspar Cassadó was one of the great cellists of the 20th century. Pablo Pablo Casals, who was Cassadó's teacher in Paris from 1906-1912, called him his "fils spirituel" and predicted a great future. Cassadó became an internationally celebrated cello virtuoso and also gained a great reputation as a composer and arranger. Cassadó's playing was poignant, powerful, and unsentimental, and his singing tone was so legendary that it was said many a singer could "envy him for his Belcanto." These 10 original albums from 1935 to 1961 (+ strong bonus tracks) contain some of his outstanding recordings, including the concerts by Schumann, Lalo, Saint-Saëns, Bach's solo suites and the Dvo 345;ák Concerto. The latter can be heard in three recordings, from 1935, 1951 and 1956. Other works include Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations, Faurés Élegie and the 2nd Haydn Concerto. The passionate chamber musician and arranger Cassadó is also well presented in this box-set.
