ASAD#8 Cello

I always loved the cello as an instrument and its timbre and sounds. Gaspar Cassadó i Moreu 30.09.1897- 24.12.1966 was a cellist and composer born in Barcelona. He wrote one oft the best solo pieces for cello. His suite for cello was written in the mid 1920 and is one of his profiled works and consists of: A Preludio-Fantasia – a Zarabanda, a Sardana and a Intermezzo e Danza Finale – a Jota.

The expressiv suite is very known , especially the finale with its Spanish folklore rhythms. Enjoy this very emotional and exuberant piece of music.

Since it is a common pieces for contests, one can find a lot of interpretations on youtube. Here is my choice:
