Jacqueline du Pré was born into a musical family.  Her mother was a pianist.  When du Pré was five, she overheard on the radio the sound of a cello and the course of her life as a great cellist was set.




Du Pré has shown great talent to ever play the cello since she was a kid. Due to her mother’s dedication to make her a great cellist, du Pré gave up every course unrelated to music.  This led to her inability to communicate to strangers without the aid of a cello.

杜普蕾的琴聲中散發出豐富的熱情與感染力,而她最有名的代表就是─艾爾加的大提琴協奏曲(Elgar Cello Concerto)

Her tones from the instrument emanate abundant affection and inspiration, with Elgar Cello Concerto, her famous recording as her representation.



In 1966, she married famous pianist and conductor Barenboim. However in 1971, while she was at another peak of her life, du Pré had an acute attack of multiple sclerosis and her performing arts career was aborted. On October 19, 1987, she died in London, England, at the age of forty-two.
