COMMENTARY: Pau Casals, recognized internationally as one of the best performers and orchestra directors of his time, has been without doubt one of the best cellists of the 20th century. Along with his extraordinary career as a musician, Pau Casals always maintained an untiring dedication to the defence of peace and liberty.
In my little tribute I have represented this popular Catalan song “El cant dels ocells” (The song of the birds) where the strings of his violoncello travel around the whole world with this melody, which for the great master meant the song for peace.
