    But du Pre's dazzling international career was cut short by multiple sclerosis, and she died in at the age of 42, after a year battle with the disease. The author, who was also a friend of Jackie's, writes about her with great affection and admiration. But not even saints can rest easy nowadays. Derek was born in Jerseywhere his family had lived for generations. After her death a rose was named after her by the Royal Horticultural Society.

It was Jackie's fault, not mine". The Du Pres say they also wrote the book to exonerate their mother, who has been criticized for the way she relentlessly spurred Jacqueline Du Pre book career.

At the end, it got more and more difficult, but we didn't desert her. Playing lifts you out of yourself into a delirious place.

Du Pre's marriage in to the equally charismatic pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim added the glitter of sex and glamour to her already glowing mystique.

Rostropovich said that she was the only young cellist who could play better than he could. The posthumous memoir A Genius in the Family later renamed Hilary and Jackie by Jacqueline's siblings Hilary and Piers, published well after her death, alleges that she had an extramarital affair with Christopher Finziher brother-in-law, from to when she was visiting Hilary's family.
