reviewed Jaqueline du Pre: a biography on
The famous cellist Jaqueline du Pre died in 1987 at age 42, of multiple sclerosis. She was married to the even more famous pianist Daniel Barenboim. Around the first two-thirds of the book deals with her youth and development as a musician and concert artist; the remainder, with her life after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a terrible fate for someone to whom playing an instrument was everything. Amazingly, she still managed to be a very effective cello teacher.
