iTunes Essentials: Jacqueline Du Pré

iTunes Essentials: Classical helps to navigate this vast array of choices, by presenting superlative performances of essential masterpieces, all from high resolution master recordings, and all Mastered for iTunes.
There can be no closer association between a great musician and a piece of music than that of cellist Jacqueline du Pré and Elgar's Cello Concerto. This iconic recording made just after the remarkably gifted 20-year-old joined the London Symphony Orchestra, established du Pré as a major recording star and revealed the concerto as the composer's late masterpiece. 

Available in the Mastered for iTunes selection.
