DuPre Plays Haydn and Boccherini

Jacqueling DuPre was an amazing musician. We lost her at an altogether young age. Here are two of her most well-known interpretations:


  • Cello Concerto No. 9 in B flat major, G 482, with the London Symphony Orchestra, Sir John Barbirolli conducting.


  • Cello Concerto No. 1 in C major, with the English Chamber Orchestra, Daniel Barenboim conducting.

Performed by Jacqueline du Pré (cello).


Jacqueline du Pré, performing with the two conductors most closely associated with her career, brings characteristic exuberance, passion and color to three cello concertos rooted in the 18th century.

In his memoir “A Life In Music”, Daniel Barenboim wrote: “I have never encountered anyone for whom music was such a natural form of expression as it was for Jacqueline … She had a capacity to imagine sound such as I never met in any other musician…”

Here is Ms. DuPre in a section of the Beethoven Piano Trio in D-Major:
