Biographies & Memoirs / Biography / Jacqueline Du Pre by Wilson, Elizabeth Wilson, Elizabeth            Review: This biography of the cellist Jacqueline du Pre, who died in 1987 after a long struggle against multiple sclerosis, has been written with the full support of her husband, the musician and conductor Daniel Barenboim. At first sight it could be seen as something of a counterweight to books critical of Barenboim written by Du Pres brother and sister--in particular A Genius in the Family. But while Barenboim does present his side of the story--in relation to both du Pres illness and the strains it put upon their marriage--Elizabeth Wilson has in fact presented a balanced portrait of du Pre not only as a woman but also as an artist. And this is the books real strength. : : Wilson, a cellist herself, knew du Pre in her playing days and has paid as much attention to the music as to the off-stage emotional dramas. Since she burst upon the music scene as a phenomenally talented 16-year-old, du Pres fame and her tragic life story has made the task of stripping the myth from the reality no easy task. In fact Elizabeth Wilson has done a professional job in unravelling du Pres enigmatic life and legacy, but most of all she reminds us that du Pre became famous in the first place because of her genius as a musician. --Nick Wroe  --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. : : Book Description: Elizabeth Wilsons life of Jaqueline Du Pre is authorized by Barenboim and has exclusive access to familly papers. She has tracked down hitherto unheard recordings, and the book is the most authoritative and rounded account yet of anartist permanently held in high public affection.  --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.Comments: pristine - as new- immediate availability-Faber & Faber 1999 paperback  466 pages.
