Jacqueline du Pré was one of the most outstanding cellist of our time.
It is a great sin, not to know, who she was. Click here ! or you will be damned forever.
When I heard the news that Jacqueline du Pré had passed away – 30 years ago – I was saddened. I’d never met her, or even seen one of her live performances. But I’ve heard her recordings, and completely was absorbed in the way she made her instrument come to life. I was hoping that her music could still stay alive. These old recordings with her husband as Conductor are a great tribute to her love of music and how it speaks to us. I’ve always enjoyed listening to the Haydn Cello Concerti, and the way they are performed with majesty in these recordings will always speak to me.
