JMI – Jewish Music Institute and UK Jewish Film are proud to announce an online season of iconic Christopher Nupen documentaries.

Shot largely in the 1960s and 70s, Nupen’s films focus on a young and energetic group of classical musicians, linked by both music and friendship, who captivated the world with their dazzling virtuosity.

In association with Israel Philharmonic

Jacqueline du Pré and the Elgar Cello Concerto (Film)

Running time: 1 hour 10 minutes. Language: English

Du Pré is best-known for her beguiling and peerless interpretation of the Elgar Cello Concerto and this documentary tells the story of her relationship with the classic work in her own words. With a prologue shot just before Du Pré’s death, the documentary is largely filmed in the late 60s, and gives us a unique insight into this colourful, quirky and ultimately tragic legend.

Followed by an exclusive conversation about the film with concert cellists Natalie Clein and Raphael Wallfisch
