his DVD contains our film Who Was Jacqueline du Pré? which has never previously been released in any home video format, an interview with Jacqueline du Pré which we shot in December 1980 and which has never before been seen by anybody but us, a 12 minute montage of images from our archives of Jacqueline du Pré and Daniel Barenboim in action set to our recording of them playing the first movement of the Brahms E minor cello sonata and our film Remembering Jacqueline du Pré which was previously issued on the EMI label.

This new release from Allegro Films and Christopher Nupen contains two films overflowing with personal reminiscences and vintage film of her playing, much of it rare or unseen. Add to that a moving interview from 1980 and a captivating 1969 recording of a Brahms sonata movement, both never previously released, and the pressure on the collector’s pocket becomes irresistible.
