On the 21st of March 1962, Jacqueline du Pré gave her first performance of the Elgar Cello Concerto at the Royal Festival Hall in London. She was just 17 years old, seemingly far too young to make the most of an autumnal work that has all the whole marks of late maturity . But it soon became clear to many of those present, that in Jacqueline du Pré's young hands, Elgar's melancoly masterpiece would, one day, have its finest interpretation.

"A swan song of rare and vanishing beauty." - Neville Cardus
