JACQUELINE DU PRÉ AND THE ELGAR CELLO CONCERTO

An intimate portrait of the legendary musician



 

 "A film about the great English cellist, Jacqueline du Pré. It traces the development of her life and career including her meeting with Daniel Barenboim and their marriage in 1967. The main theme of the film, however, is the special relationship with the Elgar Cello Concerto. Although her performing career ended in 1973 the name Jacqueline du Pré continues to be associated with this work in a unique way that has caught the imagination of the public worldwide. The film ends with a complete performance of the Concerto with the New Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Daniel Barenboim."
