The Suite for Solo Cello, written by the Catalonian cellist Gaspar Cassadó (1897-1966), reflects his native heritage and demonstrates his technical expertise and understanding of the instrument. Cassadó's international career was destroyed by fellow Catalonian cellist Pablo Casals and his political ties: as a result, Cassadó never received the recognition he deserved as a performer or as a composer and the Suite for Solo Cello is not well known. A demanding composition both musically and technically, this project report provides pertinent background information and performance practice observations and strategies directly related to the piece. A recording of the author performing the Suite for Solo Cello in recital is included as an appendix.
