Sir John Barbirolli conducts the London Symphony Orchestra with solo cellist Jacquelin Du Pre for this recording of Elgar's Cello Concerto alongside Sea Pictures featuring vocals by Janet Baker.

At the premiere of Elgar’s Cello Concerto in 1919, John Barbirolli – himself a cellist – was playing in the London Symphony Orchestra. When he recorded the work in 1965 he chose Jacqueline du Pré as soloist and she remains inextricably linked with this elegiac, but passionate work. Barbirolli’s special affection for Elgar’s music is just as evident in the glorious account of Sea Pictures with Janet Baker.

Jacqueline du Pré brings characteristic exuberance, passion and color to Elgar's Cello Concerto. In his memoir A Life In Music, Daniel Barenboim wrote: "I have never encountered anyone for whom music was such a natural form of expression as it was for Jacqueline … She had a capacity to imagine sound such as I never met in any other musician."
