Age of Confidence: Jacqueline du Pré and the Elgar Cello Concerto

Wednesday 8th June | 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Jacqueline du Pré’s groundbreaking performance of the Elgar Cello Concerto at the Royal Festival Hall, which shook the classical music world.

To celebrate, Jewish Renaissance have teamed up with the Jewish Music Institute to show Christopher Nupen’s classic 1967 documentary, Jacqueline du Pré and the Elgar Cello Concerto.

The film will be followed by a discussion of du Pré’s life and work with Rabbi Julia Neuberger, cellists Natalie Clein and Francesca Ter-Berg, and Rabbi Ariel J Friedlander, the daughter of Rabbi Albert Friedlander, who married du Pré and Daniel Barenboim and later wrote about the cellist. This event is part of our 20th anniversary year of celebrations and links to our book, Age of Confidence: The New Jewish Culture Wave, which examines the past, present and future of J-culture.
