12/12 Remembering Jacqueline du Pré

Jacqueline du Pré was a brilliant cellist who sadly was laid low at a relatively early age from sickness.  I first heard her on Elgar's Cello Concerto and I remember thinking. "who IS this?".  Ms. du Pré recorded B.'s 5 Cello Sonatas as well as some of his Piano Trios (such as the Ghost Trio which I posted about earlier this week).  However here is a documentary I just stumbled across about her and which features some fine performance footage of several different works and composers besides Cello Sonata Op.69 and the Ghost Trio...

Update: Sadly the vid below has been deleted - instead check out this playlist below to get your JdP fix...

Also THIS POST has alot of Ms. du Pre.
