 Update me on new releases by Cassado

Gaspar Cassado (9/30/1897 - 12/24/1966)

Gaspar Cassadó began learning the cello with his organist-composer father and continued at the Barcelona Conservatory until he was nine or ten. With their other son also showing promise on the violin, the Cassadós moved to Paris to find the best musical tuition available. Gaspar was extremely privileged to be one of only three students (Suggia being another) whom Casals taught at that time, as his touring career took priority. Cassadó was especially struck by realising that Casals never performed a piece of music the same way twice. He called Casals his ‘spiritual father’ and their bond remained strong for some years. During his time in Paris he also studied composition with Ravel and Falla, and performed trios with his father Joaquín and brother Agustín, who learnt violin with Thibaud.
