    More Information:

    Five pages, dated April 1, 1957 on Columbia Records letterhead, initialed throughout and signed by Casals in black ink. In a very odd twist of fate, this performance and recording never happened. Casals had recently relocated to Puerto Rico, where he founded the festival which bears his name, but fell ill and suffered a heart attack during the rehearsals. Very Fine condition. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
