Excellent Elgar (Pick #3)

Yo-Yo Ma performs as soloist with the Chicago Symphony and Daniel Barenboim in a magnificent performance of Elgar’s Cello Concerto. This version is much different from the one Jacqueline Du Pre did with Barenboim- hers is a more avant-garde performance,; she often disregards Elgar’s intended tempo or dynamics. I prefer the stability and crispness of Ma’s playing here.

  1. Jaqueline Du Pre version is much expresive and she had a very strong personality in all her performances. I prefer her passion.
