"When I think of Jacqueline du Pré, I think of a performer who thrived on stage, and of a musical spirit who swept up all around her in her enthusiasm and love of her art. It was a gift for me as a young cellist to have such a strong female player as an idol and I certainly found her a great source of inspiration throughout my early cello years. I loved [the] image of her – fearless and joyful. I believe it was her generosity of spirit and ability to transcend the small worries of everyday performing that made her so great."
– Cellist Natalie Clein
