Def 1. God as a Cellist.

Def 2. Jacqueline Du Pre was the best friken cello player there ever was and Yo Yo Ma wishes he is as good as she was. Jacqueline started playing at a very young age, her career taking off when she first played the Elgar Concerto at the age of 17. The piece is remembered by her recording. Jacqueline's career however was cut short when she was diagnosed with MS at 26, and eventually couldn't play cello by her early 30s. Is that the saddest thing you ever heard???
- Yo Yo Ma? No no, forget that. This beautiful sound you hear is Jacqueline Du Pre.
