Something unforgettable ...

... Jacqueline Du Pre playing Elgar's cello concerto. There are links to an entire film or you can just play the concerto.


  1. How interesting that you post this on the very day one of her teachers, the great Mstislav Rostropovich, died. A coincidence, or did you know?

    A wonderful performance. And how cool to see a young Daniel Barenboim. Thanks for posting the link.

  2. Actually, I did, having edited an obit of Rostropovich earlier in the day. I probably should have mentioned that, but the brain was weary.
