Mozart's Attic - Sunday, Oct 20th at 6:00 pm
Jacqueline du Pre recorded the Elgar Cello Concerto with John Barbirolli and the London Symphony in 1965. Besides bringing the fairly obscure work to the public's attention, the record made her an international superstar -- one of the young musicians of the post-war generation who would dominate solo performance into the next century.
That's what everyone thought, but Multiple Sclerosis destroyed her career, and eventually destroyed her.
This Sunday, we'll hear du Pre at the top of her form, playing the Elgar, a brilliant future still ahead of her.
