Jacqueline du Pré Biography (Wikipedia)

Jacqueline Mary du Pré, OBE (26 January 1945 – 19 October 1987) was a British cellist. At a young age, she achieved enduring mainstream popularity. Despite her short career, she is regarded as one of the most distinctive cellists of all time.

Her career was cut short by multiple sclerosis, which forced her to stop performing at the age of 28. She battled the illness for many years. Posthumously, she was the subject of a film titled Hilary and Jackie that was factually controversial and criticised for sensationalising her private life.
