This collection is dedicated to the legacy of Pablo Casals. It comprises ten pieces that he often performed throughout his extensive career. His great love of Bach is reflected by his arrangements of the Adagio from the Toccata in C Major for organ, and the Chorale Prelude from Jesu, meine Freude. The great Catalan-Spanish tradition from which he came speaks out in the Intermezzo from Granados "opera Goyescas and Casals" own Cant dell Ocells (Song of the Birds). Two other pieces in this collection, Mazurkain G minor and Vito, were composed by David Popper, who is remembered today as the leader of the Hungarian school of cello playing. Casals often played many of thesevirtuoso pieces for the cello as encores on his programs. The ten pieces in this collection contain updated fingerings and bowings, and the book also features rarely-seen photos of Casals himself. For intermediate to advanced players.
