Born in Barcelona in , he was discovered at the age of nine by a young Catalan cellist just starting out on his career, the year-old Pablo Casals, and Gaspar was accepted to study with him in Paris on a scholarship from his native city. During his long studies with Casals in Paris, he absorbed the many aesthetic crosswinds blowing through the French capital, coming to admire the spiky modernism of Stravinsky, the impressionism of Ravel, and the Spanish nationalist sentiments of Manuel Da Falla. Cervera suggests that the two presentations of the opening theme, one forte , the other piano , represent in turn Don Quixote and his beloved, Dulcinea. The second movement is a sardana, the folk dance most closely associated with the Catalonian nationalist revival of the 19th century.
