Pablo Casals in Barcelona - early 20th Century

from Joys and Sorrows. Reflections by Pablo Casals, as told by Albert E. Kahn, pages 161,162:

Some of the most memorable of my orchestra’s concerts were directed by guest conductors. Fritz Busch, Koussevitzky, Richard Strauss, Pierre, Monteux, Klemperer, Stravinsky, Arnold Schoenberg, and other eminent conductors and composers came to Barcelona at my invitation. I derived a particular pleasure from their concerts, and also from those that features the performances of distinguished guest artists- some of whom were old friends and colleagues of mine, like Thibaud, Cortot, Kreisler and Harold Bauer.
