Pau Casals: Music and commitment in the journalism of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.34)

Josep M. Figueres


In this paper, we present the public programme of action carried out by Pau Casals during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), especially through the study of the daily press, as well as archival sources, in order to clarify his public behaviour. We should bear in mind that Pau Casals was linked to the political action of the Generalitat and the Second Republic, and that he held three concerts in Barcelona (as well as engaging in international tours and recordings) during the war.

Key words: music, press, journalism, Pau Casals, Spanish Civil War, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
