Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gaspar Cassado, the Spanish 'cellist (now living in Italy), is a poised, elegant performer; there is a refinement and dignity, nobility even, in everything he does. His tone is even-grained, and eloquent; and the soloist is well balanced with the orchestra in this record.

-- Gramophone [5/1960]
