I posted something about Pau (Pablo) on another thread - I felt he merited to be part of this thread as well.

I am also sadden by the fact that my son Luis JR (1st marrage) decided to no longer persue his classical Music career.  upset as I may be - I love him and I will respect his decision to move into the whatever sciences -(sorry-just venting).

Anyway...here is Pablo Casals - Arguably worlds best Cellist (mom was 'Rican' born which means USA baby) playing his Cello. For one reason or another Pablos was always known to the worls as Europen, Spaniard, Catalan - but he chose PR to marry on his later years & be his love and place to live - he passed there on his mother's land...   RIP Pau

Pablo plays for Kennedy

“I am perhaps the oldest musician in the world. I am an old man but in many senses a very young man. And this is what I want you to be, young, young all your life, and to say things to the world that are true.”

“Music will save the world”

“The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?”


“Each person has inside a basic decency and goodness. If he listens to it and acts on it, he is giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated but it takes courage. It takes courage for a person to listen to his own good”

The only weapons I have are the conductor's baton and the cello: they are not lethal, but I have no other. With them I protest against anything I consider ignominious for mankind".

EINSTEIN ON PABLO CASALS

"He is a very great musician but what I most admire in him is his firm stance, not only against the oppressors of his people, but also against all the opportunists who are ever ready to make a pact with the devil. I see clearly that the world is threatened not so much by the wrongdoers themselves, but more by those who condone evil and allow it to be done"

Hello,

I had the pleasure of enjoying The Conga Kings, Candido Camero, Giovanni Hidalgo and the rumba group perform at NYU last Saturday.  

God Bless Candido at 89!

Here is a link to Candido and Conga Kings performing:
