About

This LP comes from the 5-LP boxset that was released in November 2017 for the 30th anniversary of death of Jacqueline du Pré; it uses the 24-BIT/96kHz remastering made at Abbey Road in 2011 for the Japanese SACD versions.

“It is good to be reminded of du Pré’s vivid, intense and joyful music-making”, wrote Gramophone of this pairing of cello concertos by Schumann and Saint-Saëns. “[The Schumann] has that kind of spontaneous freedom of line that made her account of the Elgar so famous. Her delicacy of response in the slow movement is matched by a romantic flair which carries the outer movements along so admirably. Barenboim directs a sympathetic accompaniment, following her subtle manipulation of rubato with complete understanding.”

Recorded: 8, 9.IV. & 11.V. (Schumann), 24.IX. (Saint-Saëns) 1968, No.1 Studio, Abbey Road, London
