Abstract:

The cellist in exile is, of course Pablo Casals, one of the noble figures of the century, who is aptly described here by Bernard Taper as "that rarity-an artist with a sense of commitment to humanity." The book is informal, deeply personal and permeated with Mr. Taper's own wonder and affection for his subject. Sensitive, perceptive and lucid, Cellist in Exile captures that flavor of unique personality. The book reveals Casals a he is today-still playing the cello inimitable at the age of eighty-five, still stubbornly asserting the moral tenets which have shaped his life-and shows him in the setting of Puerto Rico, which has been his home for the past few years and is his present place of exile. At the same time the book, without being a formal biography, succeed in re-creating for the reader a vivid sense of Casals long intense, rich and purposeful like.
