Many years ago I saw her Playing ELGAR in Winchester Cathedral. This was at the very beginning of her terminal illness. This DVD shows not only Jacqueline and her life but also her husband Daniel B... But also the other famous muscians. It is a fully rounded Documentry of her life and her close friends I also recommend not only this DVD but also equaly the DVD of her Trout Concert. Both are outstanding and well worth the money to purchase these DVDs. Yours David Lunn-Rockliffe (in Exeter, Devon)
Christopher Nupen's charming biopic of Jacquiline DuPre is a real gem. In typical Nupen style he disarms the viewer with his frank and often naive portrayal of the artist who radiates immense beauty and majesty with her mastery of the cello. I had to watch it through twice and enjoyed it as much for Nupen's insight into the real person behind the cello as well as absorbing Jacqui's generosity of spirit. As told during the story once having met Jacqui one would be all for her......In fact one can almost feel that one did know her and she radiates her generosity of spirit through the medium of this these films. For all of us who never knew her....... but rejoice in her music let this be an ultimate tribute to her undoubted talent.
