5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Jackie du Pre...
This is a three disc set comprised of nine cello concertos performed by one of the most loved musicians of the last century. Included is her justly famous recording of the Elgar cello concerto, one of the most beautiful works for any instrument which in her hands sounds like a love song to a vanished world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Jackie du Pre..., 23 April 2003
This review is from: Favourite Cello Concertos (Audio CD)
This is a three disc set comprised of nine cello concertos performed by one of the most loved musicians of the last century. Included is her justly famous recording of the Elgar cello concerto, one of the most beautiful works for any instrument which in her hands sounds like a love song to a vanished world. Jackie's intense love for the cello can be heard in every note, as her soul sings through the music. No other cellist has communicated the joy in the Haydn C major so expertly. Her interpretation of the Saint-Saens concerto is also wonderful combining wildness with great delicacy. The Monn is seldom heard but has a gorgeous slow movement vividly performed here. Schumann's A minor concerto is perhaps the most beautiful, and features Jackie's best playing: stunningly beautiful sounds and otherworldly passion.

This review is from: Favourite Cello Concertos (Audio CD)
I have owned and loved this set for years. Jacqueline du Pré was a remarkable musician and her legacy is a joy. You may like to know that all the recordings in this set are included in a simply wonderful Box Set of 17 (seventeen!) CDs comprising du Pré's complete recordings for EMI, and costing roughly the same as this 3-CD set Jacqueline Du Pré - Complete EMI Recordings. It also includes all her fantastic chamber music with Barenboim, Zukerman and others, and plenty of other great stuff. It's a monumental bargain and a source of immense pleasure, and I recommend it very highly indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Jackie du Pre..., 18 April 2003
This review is from: Favourite Cello Concertos (Audio CD)
This is a three CD set of gorgeous music played by one of the greatest cellists of all time and as such is an essential purchase. Included is her legendary recording of the Elgar E minor cello concerto which in her hands sounds like a love song to a vanished world. The two Haydn concertos feature some of Jackie's best playing, no other cellist has communicated the joy and passion of the C major concerto so expertly and the slow movement of the D major concerto is like a tear drop from heaven. The Schumann concerto is a stunningly beautiful piece and Jackie dazzles in her interpretation. The heightened emotion in her music is what makes duPre's playing so unique and special: to her the cello was not simply her voice, it was her soul.
