Pablo Casals in Barcelona - late 19th Century

from Joys and Sorrows. Reflections by Pablo Casals, as told by Albert E. Kahn, page 42:

Sometimes he [Senõr Tost] would take me to concerts; once we heard Richard Strauss conducting some of his works at the Teatro Líruci – Strauss was then a young man, at the beginning of his career. The experience had a great impact on me.
