Notes and Editorial Reviews

You cannot deny the big-boned exuberance and animal energy Jacqueline du Pré brings to the Schumann Cello Concerto. At the piano this time, Barenboim’s tempo fluctuations have shape and specificity, helped by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau’s clear support. Barenboim admirably projects the concerto Finale’s rapid, spinning patterns as viable melodies and generally plays with intimacy and refinement.
