“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. Du Pré’s recordings provide a treasurable memento of the “perfect balance of youth and maturity” that her teacher, William Pleeth, found in her music-making: “She approached each new experience with spontaneous pleasure and enthusiasm.” Offering a vivid experience of her life-enhancing art, this 2-CD set of concertos, sonatas and chamber works features recordings remastered in 24-BIT / 96kHz at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios.
