This review is from: Haydn: Cello Concertos - Boccherini: Cello Concerto (Audio CD)
The title may be a little hyberbolic, but this recording is just fantastic, and is something that I listen to time and again. Du Pre is a genius and she shows her wonderful musicianship to great effect with both the Haydn and the Boccherini. I would rate this recording up there with her iconic rendition of the Elgar cello concerto. The three concertos never fail to please me and they always bring a smile to my face. I couldn't recommend this recording highly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars du Pré is magnificent., 27 Jun 2010

This review is from: Haydn: Cello Concertos - Boccherini: Cello Concerto (Audio CD)
The two Haydn Cello Concertos are always a delight. Full of good tunes that one never tires of listening to. I have several recordings of these two pieces and du Pré's rendering is a joy. As a relatively unsophisticated music lover I found little in the Boccherini concerto that came anywhere near the entertainment value of the Haydn concertos. Even the rondo, which appears from time to time on Classic FM, is unexciting by comparison. That said, du Pré plays it, as one would expect, beautifully.

The recording is technically good. I would recommend this CD to anyone. I can enjoy the Haydn concertos and will, hopefully, extend my appreciation of music by listening to the Boccherini and learning why the experts like it.
