“She clearly was born to play the cello,” wrote the New York Times of Jacqueline Du Pré in 1967. Just five years later her career was cut tragically short by illness. This LP provides a treasurable memento of the “perfect balance of youth and maturity” that Du Pré’s teacher, William Pleeth, found in her playing: “She approached each new experience with spontaneous pleasure and enthusiasm.” Offering a vivid experience of her art in the concerto, not least her legendary Elgar, the album comprises recordings remastered in 24-BIT / 96kHz at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios.
