Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a very reasonably priced three CD set of du Pré at her best. Although I lean towards Paul Tortelier, the reasons are more historical than musical, many people consider her to be the cellist of the twentieth century and with good reason. She had the ability during her short career to bring out the true depths of feeling only the cello can achieve and few cellists.
Beginning with a piece she made her own and an early recording many consider to be the very best with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir John Barbirolli, it has a wide range of her performances including later recordings with her husband, Daniel Barenboim.
Although, both in terms of range and value for money, the other reviewer's suggestions recommending the seventeen CD set is probably true (£15 more, fourteen more CDs but I didn't see it first), this is still a good purchase and one I recommend.

If you like the cello, and it's greatest players?
Then this is for you
Get the technicalities out of the way.
The production is very good, the recording is excellent, the quality is fantastic
Now for the reality.
Du Pre.
Can she be surpassed ?
Clearly a very subjective point of view.
If she can then there are very few who can
If you appreciate the cello?
BUY THIS
You will not be dissapointed

I bought this for the Concertos and a better version of them in my lifetime seems very unlikely. You'll need to look elsewhere for Schumann's Concerto but that is how it is. The sound is very clear and immediate - coupled with the sublime playing, you are listening to perfection. The only way I could imagine hearing better would be to get the same recordings on Vinyl and play them on my Linn Sondek.

Wonderfully moving music by , imo, the best cellist of the 20th century. It's a standout recording in my classical collection.

Jacquie’s playing is absolutely exquisite and very sensitive. She is undoubtedly the best cello player I have ever heard, and the music quality of the disc is superb.
