Collections and research
The Pablo Casals Collection is formed by the documents relating to the personal, professional and public life of Pau Casals from 1876 to 1976. The collection contains the documents generated and received by Pau Casals, his personal and family documents, the documents produced as a consequence of his artistic activity as a musician, and documentation on his associative and political activity. Because of its volume and interest, the creative work which it contains is notable among the ensemble of the fonds, including compositions by Pau Casals as well as by other musicians. Likewise significant is the correspondence fonds, which is of special interest since it bears witness to the relations maintained by Pau Casals with the diverse spheres of culture, politics and society of his times.
Another notable feature of the collection is its image and sound section, formed by photographs, sketches, diplomas, prints and drawings, and an important sound and audiovisual collection, the latter containing, among other things, diverse 8mm and 16mm films dealing with Pau Casals' life. The Pablo Casals Collection is currently on deposit at the National Archive of Catalonia (ANC).
