Pablo Casals is till date one of the most renowned named in the music fraternity. An eminent music personality of the 20th century, he went on to become the greatest cellist of the century. A prodigious child, his first ever music training was from his dad, who in turn was a parish organist and choirmaster. By the age of eleven, he mastered playing multiple instruments such as the piano, violin and flute. He chanced upon listening to the cello when he was eleven. No sooner he developed a passion for the instrument and resolved to take up a career in the same. Casals musical abilities and aspiration helped him go up the league. He started performing for the royal and the influential class. It was for his outstanding contribution in the field of music that he was presented with the highly esteemed Presidential Medal of Freedom and U.N. Peace Medal. Though he made many recordings throughout his career, in solo, chamber, and orchestral music, and as a conductor, he is best reminisced for the recordings of the Bach Cello Suites which he created from 1936 to 1939.
