Cello legend Jacqueline du Pre (1945--1987) has a timeless musical voice. Best remembered for her recording of Elgar's Cello Concerto, du Pre's repertoire spanned from Bach to Bruch. Marion Feldman has selected seven works from du Pre's repertoire for this collection, providing editorial guidance and transcription of du Pre's fingerings and bowings. Of special interest is a transcription of du Pre's Elgar Concerto, observing attention to detail of her performance. Also included is Faure's Elegie, Saint-Saens' Allegro appassionato, Bach's Arioso from Cantata No. 156, Schumann's Fantasiestuck, Bruch's Kol Nidre, and von Paradis' Sicilienne. Included are numerous exclusive photographs and recollections of du Pre from Eugenia Zukerman. The fourth in Carl Fischer Music's Cello Legacy series, this volume is a much anticipated gem for cellists and fans of Jacqueline du Pre.
I am now into the fourth book of our Legacy Series which has far surpassed my dreams. I visualized it as a series which would keep alive the names, life and cellistic work of some of our most important cello "ancestors." Working on this extended project has brought me closer to these important cello mentors. Meeting with friends, students and relatives of each has brought a more personalized view. The interviews have evolved into a way of seeing the impact each artist had on his close circle of friends and family. This also gave me access to pictures and materials that had not been published before. The manuscripts in Feuermann's own handwriting which Marika Hughes allowed us to use in the Feuermann book were a remarkable source that had never been seen before. The pictures, letter and recollections from Eugenia Zukerman in the du Pre book were also materials that had never been published before this. Tim Janof 's interviews in the Rostropovich Memoriam were great materials that, although available on the internet, had rarely been seen by many cellists. The photos and aid from Marta Casals Istomin added so much impact to the first book, The Casals Legacy. In this book, The du Pre Legacy, my idea was to transcribe Jacqueline du Pre's bowings and fingerings for the Elgar Concerto. I used a well-known video with Daniel Barenboim conducting. This was a challenge and a larger job than I had anticipated, but it was rewarding to explore what her choices had been. It took many arduous hours checking the video to make sure I had seen the details correctly. However, it was worth the effort, because so many people had anxiously waited to see them in print. I thank David Dutkanicz, the production manager at Carl Fischer, who has so enthusiastically continued to support my vision and without whom the Legacy Series would never have come into existence.
