A few years before signing her first contract with EMI, Jacqueline du Pré, who was already in the public eye for noted performances on stage and on television, gave her very first recordings before the microphones of the BBC. Surrounded by experienced accompanists such as Ernest Lush and William Pleeth and another rising star, the young Stephen Kovacevich with whom she then formed a short-lived but successful chamber duet, she gave splendid renditions of major pieces of the repertoire (two Bach suites, a cello sonata by Brahms, transcriptions of works by Falla and Handel, and a set of pieces here performed for two cellos from Couperin’s Les goûts-réünis). This marks the end of Warner's Jacqueline du Pré digital project: all of her recordings are now available 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!
