I was driving around listen to the radio, they were playing a piano trio but by the time I got home that was all I remembered. I don’t think it was this one but this one works for the last Sunday in August.
Formed in Berlin, Germany in 2003 by Annette von Hehn (violin), Thomas Hoppe (piano) and Stefan Heinemeyer (violoncello) the ATOS Trio has established itself as one of the finest piano trios performing before the public today.
Today’s selection is a classic performance that reminds us for all of our worries we live in remarkable times. Ms Du Pre had to quit playing at the age of 28 because of health issues but here, 50 years later, I can watch her perform and enjoy a remarkable musician. One that I had never heard of before the Youtube algo offered it for my enjoyment this afternoon.
A remarkable trip back in time,
Jacqueline Mary du Pré(26 January 1945 – 19 October 1987) was a British cellist. At a young age, she achieved enduring mainstream popularity. Despite her short career, she is regarded as one of the greatest cellists of all time.
Her career was cut short by multiple sclerosis, which forced her to stop performing at the age of 28; she died 14 years later at the age of 42.
This is a full concert, the first 27 min is Joe Pass playing a beautiful jazz on an accustical guitar. That was good then Ella came in and it got even better. This is from 1975. Two masters of their craft working together.
