“I am a very simple man. I am a man first, an artist second. My first obligation is to the welfare of my fellow man. I will endeavour to meet this obligation through music, since it transcends language, politics and national boundaries.”
It was Pablo Casals.
Not only was he a world famous cellist and conductor, he was passionate about his fellow man. It was his ambition to bring beautiful music, peace and harmony to the world and he was nicknamed appropriately by his friends as, ‘Pau’ which means ‘peace.’
Pablo is remembered as a passionate political activist and one of the greatest cello players and music composers of the 20th century. He was recognized as being the first artist to play an entire Bach suite in public. Today, musicians around the world still celebrate this great musical hero.
