Cello Recital: Nine All-Star Soloists
We celebrate the legacy of the legendary cellist Pablo Casals and his musical connections to Boston and Puerto Rico. In October 1901 Casals began performing Bach’s solo cello suites in public, the catalyst for their popularity with audiences today. On November 26, 1901 Casals made his Boston debut at the Colonial Theatre as part of his first U.S. tour with soprano Emma Nevada.
