Pablo Casals

“From 1950 Casals became a celebrity again ….He founded the Prades Festival where many recordings were made including, in 1954, his most sought-after recording after the Bach Suites: an arrangement by his brother of an old Catalan Christmas song Cant del Ocells (Song of the Birds). This piece …was very dear to Casals, so much so that he almost always ended his recitals with this tune. “ (c) James Murray
