ACMF Artists are joined by Dr. Rosi Song (Durham University, UK) to explore the fascinating life of cellist-composer Gaspar Cassado through his musical influences. Originally from the Catalonia region of Spain, Cassado was the protege of the great cellist, Pablo Casals, and studied composition with Maurice Ravel at the turn of the century in Paris. Having lived through two world wars, Spanish fascism and more, his life and music is a fascinating reflection of this year’s festival themes of illuminating the roots of folk music in classical forms.
Luigi Boccherini: Musica notturna delle strade di Madrid, Opus 30 No. 6
Gaspar Cassadó: Quartet No. 1 in F minor
Maurice Ravel: String Quartet in F Major
