Biography of Jacqueline du Pré

JP are named after the famous British cellist – Jacqueline du Pré. She is regarded as one of the greatest cellists of all time. Her romantic style lead to international stardom by the age of 20. She regularly performed with the likes of Sir Malcolm Sargent, Rostropovich, Yehudi Menuhin, Itzhak Perlman and Daniel Barenboim, whom she later married. Her playing career was cut short after a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, although she continued to teach when her health permitted it. Du Pré died in London on 19 October 1987 at age 42.
