  • Song of the Birds

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Song of the Birds ('Cant des ocells') is a traditional Catalan song.
    It was arranged for cello by cellist Pablo Casals and routinely played by him as an encore to protest the Franco regime in Spain.
    It is also a 1935 Max Fleischer Color Classic

    This was remade in November 18, 1949 by Bill Tytla starring Audrey Smith.

    Song of the Birds is also a 1985 collection of sayings, stories, and impressions of Casals made by cellist Julian Lloyd Webber.

    Casals was one of the world's most respected cellists.
    He was a legend in his own lifetime, one so powerful that when, in protest at Franco's regime, he began a self-imposed exile in the tiny French Pyrenean village of Prades just north of the Spanish border, the world's leading musicians refused to allow Casals' genius to remain unheard and flocked there, creating a famous festival in the heart of the mountains.

    Casals' sayings and witticisms were as legendary as his musical interpretations, and he was revered by the world's great statesmen and musicians alike. His amazing career spanned well over half a century: he played before Queen Victoria in 1899 and was invited by two Presidents of the United States (Theodore Roosevelt in 1904 and John F Kennedy in 1961) to play at the White House.[citation needed]

    Above all else, Casals was driven by a faith in the innate goodness of mankind

    . 'I am a man first, an artist second,' he declared[citation needed], and in Song of the birds Julian Lloyd Webber has collected, as an act of homage, sayings, impressions and stories of the 'little Catalan maestro' which illustrate his indomitable spirit as both artist and man.

  • I believe it is a Catalan folk song made famous by Pablo Casals.
    There is a difference of opinion whether his name is Pablo or Pau Casals.
    I have read that PAU also means PEACE in Catalan. I do now know if this is true or not.
