Jacqueline du Pre

If you ever get the chance to see the movie "Hilary and Jackie," watch it (1998). It's one of my favorites. It's the true story about two musical sisters from Britain, one a flutist and the other a cellist. Jacqueline is seen below in this clip performing Elgar's Cello Concerto in E minor, Opus 85, 1st movement, sometime in the 1970's.. It's her most famous piece, and well worth listening to.
