Cello legend Jacqueline du Pré (1945—1987) started at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with cellist and pedagogue William Pleeth at the age of 11. In 1962 she made her concert debut at the Royal Festival Hall with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Rudolph Schwarz playing the Elgar Concerto, which became her signature piece. Over the next ten years she studied with Paul Tortelier and Rostropovich and recorded for EMI with the London Symphony Orchestra. She met pianist Daniel Barenboim in 1966 at a party where they spontaneously sat down and played the Brahms F-Major Cello Sonata together. They were married in 1967 in Israel. Their friendship with Pinchas Zukerman, Zubin Mehta, and Itzhak Perlman led to many great concerts and chamber-music recordings, including of the Beethoven Ghost Trio and of the Schubert’s Trout Quintet. Jacqueline du Pré died at the age of 42, her career cut short by multiple sclerosis.
