From the Jacqueline du Pré Documentary

Entertaining clip from the documentary of cellist Jacqueline du Pré. John Barbirolli responds to comments that du Pré had too much showy energy. He pretty much says you should have that kind of energy when you're young.

Ed, I love Jacqueline du Pre, so I am really keen to see this. Thank you so much for sharing it! :-) If I were to play a classical musical instrument, I would like it to be the cello. I play piano, but there's something about the cello...I don't know... lol

She got such a great sound from her cello... I really liked the movie "Hillary & Jackie" too.

Great clip! She was a wonderful cellist though also a little crazy! hehe!

I have watched the whole of that docu in the past. I think bbc tv did a whole evening dedicated to jacqui, if I remember rightly. It was sad when she began to deteriorate, though her spirits held up pretty well.
