Pablo Casals in Barcelona - 1919

from Joys and Sorrows. Reflections by Pablo Casals, as told by Albert E. Kahn, pages 151,152:

In Barcelona, at the time of my return, there were two symphony orchestras. They had no regular concert schedules – they played only on special occasions and rehearsed infrequently. When I heard them, I thought it was shocking that a city this size not have something better to offer. Other major European cities had first-class orchestras. Why not Barcelona?
