Lost in Plain Sight: Gaspar Cassadó’s Iberian Legacy
Featuring chamber players from the Appalachian Chamber Music Festival. An exploration of the work of Spanish Catalan cellist and composer Gaspar Cassadó (1897-1966). As part of a research project to recover his legacy while examining what could be identified or understood as a “Spanish sound” in 20th century classical music, the recital presents a combination of lecture and performance, where the audience is invited to learn about the life and work of Cassadó in conversation with the work of other composers.
