Pinchas Zukerman, Jacqueline Du Pré and Daniel Barenboim perform Beethoven: "The Ghost"

Pinchas Zukerman, Jacqueline Du Pré and Daniel Barenboim perform Beethoven: "The Ghost"

About

Almost certainly the finest performance ever filmed of this great work – Beethoven's Piano Trio Opus 70 No. 1, known as "The Ghost".

The work is a masterpiece, the performance spellbinding and the filming, in the words of the French film and opera director Jean-Pierre Ponnelle, the most successful translation of musical performance onto the screen that he had ever seen. The filming took place in St John's Smith Square, London on the 12th of May 1970, before the onset of Jacqueline du Pré's illness and in the early days of the Barenboim – du Pré – Zukerman Trio, which promised to become one of the great Piano Trios of all time.
