This was a gift and it will remain so. The fierce playing and interplay between instruments is intoxicating. These two lived and loved the music, their instruments and each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars A window to intimacy 4 Nov. 2012
By Tom Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I got this recording after listening to Rubinstein Plays Brahms. Rubinstein and Piatigorsky play the Brahms cello sonatas with grandeur, giving the impression of dignified respect for an important compsoser. I was therefore struck by the intimacy of the Barenboim and du Pré performance. They give the music a personal meaning, and it's a privilege to eavesdrop.

Ever since seeing the movie Hilary & Jackie I've been inclined to think of Daniel Barenboim as a pompous ass. His recordings continually prove me wrong. Here he is an engaged collaborative musician, and in Wolf: Lieder he is an attuned accompanist to Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. I find his readings of the Bruckner symphonies consistently satisfying and his videos of Der Ring des Nibelungen thriling. Damn the man.
5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply moving, superb performance 28 May 2013
By Music Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I know some people criticize Chopin and Franck sonatas, Du Pre using a different cello, towards the end of her career, etc.
For me, Chopin and Franck pieces are powerful and deeply moving. I felt the life force on each note as well as Brahms, of course. Barenboim's piano beautifully collaborates with the cello.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Moving 1 Jun. 2010
By Donald G. Hite III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've always been a fan of Du Pre, particularly her huge, husky sound (which I think is spectacularly showcased on the Brahms pieces).

I will admit that the Franck sounds a bit labored at times (compared to, say, the much leaner rendition by Muller-Schott, among others), but I can't help but be moved by this recording. Knowing this was recorded near the end of her career, I always think about the mixture of sadness (at losing her ability to play, among other things) and joy (at still being able to share this musical moment with her husband, who is her pianist) she must have felt. I love the Franck, especially the last movement, which seems to express a similar mixture of sadness, longing, and outright joy. I can't imagine a better vessel for expressing what she must have been feeling at that particular time.

I'm normally one to judge a piece purely on the end product (without considering the circumstances under which it was played or recorded), but something about this recording just touches me. To paraphrase Alec Baldwin from 30 Rock, if you have "two ears and a heart", this recording is a must hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars magnificent and moving 17 Dec. 2009
By music lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
DuPre and Barenboim are in a category unto themselves. Others play and played with more expected academic technique, but none with more passion, inspiration and insight into the music itself. In our present-day doldrums of technically proficient but soullessly performed and soullessly produced recordings, this is a treasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like the Brahms, Avoid the Chopin and Franck 14 Dec. 2006
By James the Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Chopin and Franck recordings were made while Jacqueline duPre was ill and near the end of her life. As heroic as it may have been to make these recordings in that condition, the quality suffers. The Brahms sonatas are tighter; they have the usual Jacqueline duPre warmth to the sound, and they are much better. If it comes down to buying this album or one with just the Brahms, and there is a price reason to choose the Brahms, I'd pass on this one. But if you can get this compilation for the same price as just the Brahms sonatas, you might as well, unless you don't want any subpar recordings in your collection.
