At the risk of alienating a large number of people on this thread I have to say, her artistry and technique not withstanding, I never found her tone on the ’cello very ingratiating. It just didn’t sound terribly sweet to my ears. Having said that I have a whole bunch of her recordings with Barenboim, Zukerman, Barbirolli et al.

Superb artist sadly cut off in her prime. Her sister did her memory no favours by writing a creepy book about her. After Rostropovich heard her play the Elgar he said he would never play it again as he could never match Jackie’s performance.
