Another long-thought lost concert this week, and another extreme rarity. The legendary Cellist Jacqueline Du Pre in concert with The Los Angeles Philharmonic, guest Conducted by Lawrence Foster, recorded on February 16, 1967.

Several months earlier I posted another Los Angeles Philharmonic concert featuring Du Pre. That one featured the orchestra conducted by Daniel Barenboim at the Hollywood Bowl. This one is from the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion with no airplanes or clinking wine bottles.

The rather shortish program features three works (all on one player)

1. Beethoven: Consecration of The House – Overture

2. Goehr: Pastorals (U.S. Premier)

3. Haydn: Cello Concerto in C Major

Truly, one of the great Cellists of the 20th Century, in a live concert setting – one which hasn’t been heard since the day it was first recorded.

    On the advice of a friend at the beginning of the CD era, I bought the Du Pre/Barbirolli/LSO Elgar Cello Concerto. I really knew nothing about classical music at the time–I’d bought some Karajan/Beethoven and Solti/Schubert and a few others. I wasn’t EVEN ready for Ms. Du Pre, was knocked back on my heels, and now, I *think* I’ve got about 80-90% of her legitimately recorded output. And about 1000 more classical CDs/LPs.

    Thanks once again, Gordon, for unearthing a treasure. I can’t wait to listen to it.

      As always, my pleasure! There’s always something lurking out there that hasn’t been unearthed yet. I”m always working on it.
