18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Andrew R. Barnard on 17 Nov. 2012
Format: Audio CD
It's rare that all listeners unanimously agree that a recording is a gold standard. But it's as difficult to find someone who doesn't think Jacqueline du Pre has the best Elgar Cello Concerto on record as it is to find someone who thinks the earth is flat. Such unequivocal praise from all musical realms seems eerie. Classical music fans just don't agree like this.

But it's no wonder everyone is bowled over by this disc. With effortless authority, it solves all the challenges the work poses. For those with limited familiarity with the Cello Concerto, it is Elgar's masterpiece, imbued with nostalgia and a sense of regret. It's personal, even private, with moments of otherworldly reflection that asks for no distractions. Due to the work's melancholic nature, if an interpreter presents any reticence, the mood becomes gloomy and ponderous instead of rich and soul-searching. On the other hand, if the interpreter moves too quickly, we lose sight of the depth of meaning Elgar instilled, finding ourselves wandering without decisive meaning.

Du Pre succeeds because she finds the perfect balance. She gives her all, with ravishing soul, yet she's patient, holding on and never letting go too soon. Her passion is unrestrained, but it's bent to serve her comprehensive view of the work as a whole. And that vision is one encapsulating Elgar's heartfelt sadness while showcasing intensity that nearly pulls us along. We're never hurried, though. The determination that pours out of du Pre's cello keeps us looking ahead, and even when we're mourning, we can see a ray of hope in the distance. She is also blessed with committed accompaniment from Sir John Barbirolli and the LSO. Both conductor and soloist join together to create an environment full of electricity.

This is an old recording but it is a superb combination. No one else has ever sung the Sea Pictures like Baker, and few have matched the passion of Du Pre playing the Elgar concerto.

Ths CD will not disapppoint. Wonderful performances. Spine tingling singing from Dame Janet Baker. For those now not too familiar with her exceptional voice this is her at her best.
