Centenary of the Pau Casals Orchestra
The Pau Casals Orchestra, founded and directed by maestro Casals, had an intense musical life until the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. Thanks to the concerts held at the Palau de la Música, great works in the history of music could be heard for the first time in Barcelona, and enjoyed conductors such as Richard Strauss, Igor Stravinsky, Manuel de Falla and Arnold Schönberg.
