Here is a batch of absolute masterpieces of the romantic concertante cello repertoire, played with her endless energy and sensitivity. This album gathers recordings that remained long unavailable even after du Pré’s death. Don Quixote was initially meant to be recorded with Otto Klemperer as a prelude to a concert at the Royal Albert Hall, but as they didn’t get on at all the project remained unrealized. Thankfully a rehearsal session directed by Sir Adrian Boult was preserved! A few seconds of recording were missing at the very beginning but have been patched with the Klemperer version. They are coupled with concertos by Lalo (which du Pré played for her first appearance on TV in 1958) and Saint-Saëns with Daniel Barenboim. The latter is a digital premiere. One of six new digital albums released recently by Jacqueline du Pré, all in brand new high resolution remasterings!

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
