Pablo Casals was the most famous cellist of the 20th century. He pioneered the inclusion of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Suites for Unaccompanied Cello into the general repertory. In 1937, after performing the iconic Dvorak Concerto for Cello with the Czech Philharmonic in Prague, Casals’ performance was captured on discs. On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, you will hear this renowned classic of the phonograph.
