Product Description

This is a re-issue, in an improved version, of Christopher Nupens best-selling DVD previously released through Opus Arte it now appears on the Christopher Nupen Films label for the first time.

As usual with Christopher Nupen DVDs, this one contains two films: the famous portrait film of Jacqueline du Pré which includes the complete Elgar cello Concerto in a performance which has become legendary and a performance film, The Ghost (Beethovens Trio Op. 70 No. 1) with Daniel Barenboim and Pinchas Zukerman; described by the French opera and film director Jean-Pierre Ponnelle as the most successful translation of musical performance onto the screen that he had ever seen. And, also as usual with Christopher Nupen films, these are lit, shot and edited in the style of cinema film, not television. The results are visually impressive and totally unlike what usually appears on television screens an important, defining characteristic of this DVD.

These two films remember the artistic persona of one of the most charismatic and best loved performing musicians of the 20th century and in the way that film can do better than any of the other media. They were made at the high point of Jacqueline du Prés tragically short career.


The most complete account of the workings of an orchestra that we have seen so far. --The Times

Somehow when she is playing we have access to Elgar's soul: it requires far more than a great cellist to give us that. If you haven t seen these films for some time, now is the moment to reacquaint yourself with them. Unmissable viewing. --Elgar Society Journal

This disk brings back wonderful memories of when I first heard Jacqueline Du Pre play (sadly not at a live concert). I hope this DVD will enable many others to share these moments. Highly recommended.
