Seven Variations on a theme of Mozart Sonata in C, Op. 102, No. 1
Prades is a small French-Catalan town in the south-eastern Pyrenees; and there Pablo Casals (who is now seventy-eight) lives in retirement, an exile from his native Spain. In 1950, in commemoration of the two-hundredth anniversary of the death of Bach, a Prades Music Festival was instituted, with Casals playing the leading part. Last summer the Prades Festival, given in St. Peter's Church, was devoted to the chamber music of Beethoven.
