[ Warner Classics / 17 CD Box Set ]
Release Date: Friday 1 December 2017
Jacqueline du Pre's career, though tragically brief, coincided with a golden age of recording.
This 17-disc treasury unites her entire EMI Classics legacy and includes - for the first time on CD - two Bach sonata movements from her 1962 debut recital for the label.
Interpretations long recognised as classic are joined by further rarities, among them the Lalo Cello Concerto, recorded with Daniel Barenboim and the Cleveland Orchestra in 1973, and, from 1968, Strauss's Don Quixote under Sir Adrian Boult.
This collection includes the very latest Abbey Road remasters of Du Pré's recordings in one definitive boxed set and offers the listener the ultimate listening experience with a fantastic clarity of sound and dynamic range.
The collection includes a full-colour 32-page booklet detailing the life and art of Du Pré in both words and pictures as well as a timeline overview of her career.
