Jacqueline du Pré Schumann: Cello Concerto / Saint-Saëns: Cello Concerto No. Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

Overview:
This LP comes from the 5xLP boxset that was released in November 2017 for the 30th anniversary of death of Jacqueline du Pré;
it uses the 24-BIT/96kHz remastering made at Abbey Road in 2011 for Japanese SACD versions.

“It is good to be reminded of du Pré’s vivid, intense and joyful music-making”, wrote Gramophone of this pairing of cello concertos by Schumann and Saint-Saëns. “[The Schumann] has that kind of spontaneous freedom of line that made her account of the Elgar so famous.
Her delicacy of response in the slow movement is matched by a romantic flair which carries the outer movements along so admirably. Barenboim directs a sympathetic accompaniment, following her subtle manipulation of rubato with complete understanding.”
