Product Notes

During her far-too-brief career, cellist Jacqueline du Pré exhibited an almost oracular power of communication. Her performances bristled with the kind of brilliant electricity that could change lives and convert listeners to a lifelong love of music. Happily, it''s possible to experience a sense of that power from the recordings du Pré completed before multiple sclerosis halted her career as a performer in the early 1970s. This set provides a splendid portrait--at bargain price--of du Pré''s unmistakable personality: the astonishingly original yet convincing phrasing, raw energy, and ability to make her instrument sound uncannily like a human voice (du Pré was after all a favored student of Mstislav Rostropovich). Her rendition of Haydn''s Concerto in C is clearly cast in a romantic--and nowadays perhaps unfashionable--mold, yet du Pr&eacute''s big, bold tone carries the musical line forward with exhilarating presence. It''s a demeanor that proves especially reassuring for the quirkily mercurial inventions of Boccherini. Yet du Pré most indelibly leaves her signature on the work that became her hallmark, Edward Elgar''s E Minor Concerto, grafting a deeply personal level of expression onto the score''s rich post-World War I melancholy. In the Schumann, du Pré makes an eloquently passionate protagonist. A similar sense of excitement is to be heard in Dvorák''s Concerto--performed near the end of her career--above all in the flame of inspiration she evidently sparks from the orchestra in the serene close of its slow movement. This is a supremely rewarding collection for the beginner and aficionado alike. --Thomas May

5 out of 5 stars Great Cello Concertos, March 22, 2009
By Waldstein
If you are a fan of the cello concerto, this is a fantastic set for you. Du Pre plays all of them well, and they are all enjoyable. I particularly enjoy the Dvorak and Schumann, but I have enjoyed them all but the Boccherini. This is a fairly good price. If these pieces interest you, dont hesitate to get this set.
