Pablo Casals

Pablo Casals in support of the Musicians Foundation

World renown cellist Pablo Casals dedicated a record for the benefit of Musicians Foundation, Inc. courtesy of Columbia Records and its artists. Here is a recording of Pablo Casals speaking from the album and expressing his commitment to the Foundation:

 


“I am grateful for all the years of good health and musical happiness that I enjoyed and am still enjoying. I would like to share this good fortune that God has given me with all my colleagues in paying tribute to a wonderful organization, the Musicians Foundation. This record made with my friends Alexander Schneider and Isaac Stern and all the other musicians who participated in our music making, brings back wonderful memories of the first Festivals in Prades, the beginning of a new and meaningful era for me. I hope that it will bring the same musical happiness to many people who through their generous contribution will help to further the good work of the Musicians Foundation.”
