Gaspar Cassadó (Composer)

Born: 5th October 1897, Barcelona, Spain

Died: 24th December 1966, Madrid, Spain

Nationality: Spanish

Gaspar Cassadó i Moreu was a Spanish cellist and composer of the early 20th century. He was born in Barcelona to a church musician father, Joaquim Cassadó, and began taking cello lessons at age seven. When he was nine, he played in a recital where Pablo Casals was in the audience; Casals immediately offered to teach him. The city of Barcelona awarded him a scholarship so that he could study with Casals in Paris.

He was also the author of several notable musical hoaxes, notably the "Toccata" that he attributed to Girolamo Frescobaldi.

The personal papers of Cassadó's father are preserved in the Biblioteca de Catalunya.
