Pablo Casals (1876 – 1973), better known in some countries as Pablo Casals, was a Spanish cellist and conductor from Catalonia. He is generally regarded as the pre-eminent cellist of the first half of the 20th century, and one of the greatest cellists of all time. He made many recordings throughout his career, of solo, chamber, and orchestral music, also as conductor, but he is perhaps best remembered for the recordings of the Bach Cello Suites he made from 1936 to 1939.
Casals was born in El Vendrell, Catalonia, Spain. His father, Carles Casals i Ribes (1852–1908), was a parish organist and choirmaster. He gave Casals instruction in piano, song, violin, and organ. He was also a very strict disciplinarian. At the age of four Casals could play the violin, piano and flute; at the age of six he played the violin well enough to perform a solo in public. His first encounter with a cello-like instrument was from witnessing a local traveling Catalan musician, who played a cello-strung broom handle. Upon request, his father built him a crude cello, using a gourd as a sound-box. When Casals was eleven, he first heard the real cello performed by a group of traveling musicians, and decided to dedicate himself to the instrument.



Casals was the most influential cellist to embrace certain modern ideas, including a free movement of the right upper arm, large stretches in the left hand as well as promoting a prominent - later to be called continuous - vibrato. By 1910 Casals was a world celebrity, travelling intensively and influencing both younger and older colleagues through performances and lessons. After Casals, a generation of ambitious cello virtuosi conquered the world stage, including Piatigorsky Feuermann and Cassado. The fact that Casals could be considered as not only the greatest cellist, but possibly the greatest musician in the world today by Eugene Ormandy was not only a testament to his personal prestige, but to the change in perception regarding the cello as a solo instrument.
