Listening to a recording by the late cellist Jacqueline duPre, one can sense her unique qualities, but watching her play is a revelation. We get a chance to do this once more with the release of two documentaries by Teldec ("Jacqueline duPre and the Elgar Cello Concerto: An Intimate Portrait of a Legendary Musician" and "The Trout: The Historic 1969 Documentary"). The videotapes reveal in intimate, glorious detail some of what can only be sensed on record.

It's hardly surprising that a mystique has attached to Jacqueline DuPre, the British cellist who died in 1987 at age 42, 15 years after her brief career was ended by the onset of multiple sclerosis, the crippling disease to which she would eventually succumb.

Hard-core fiddle fanciers may well rejoice in "Stradivarius On Stage" (tonight at 10:10 on Channel 28). The BBC-TV production--basically a concert with an intermission featurette between each movement--is filled with close-ups of eight instruments by the Cremona master. But the uninitiated should not rely on the program for real information about the luthier or his craft.

Felix Wurman, a cellist who founded the Church of Beethoven performance series in Albuquerque, has died of complications from cancer, a sister said. He was 51. FOR THE RECORD: A news obituary in Thursday's Section A on Felix Wurman, an Albuquerque musician and founder of the Church of Beethoven concert series, said that the artistic director of the series is David Feldman. His name is David Felberg. Wurman, who had been undergoing treatment for bladder cancer, died late Saturday night at a hospice facility in Hillsborough, N.C. Wurman was a cellist with the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra when, two years ago, he recruited other musicians from the symphony to play Sunday morning concerts in an abandoned gas station off Route 66. The Times profiled the weekly concert series, which Wurman called the Church of Beethoven, on Sunday.

Allison Eldredge was sweet and polite during an interview that interrupted her Sunday afternoon freedom. She was also exuberant. After all, she has a great deal in which to exult: At the age of 20, the cellist has a career that would make many of her elders envious. New York-born but California-reared, Eldredge is the product of parents who committed themselves wholeheartedly to nurturing her talent.

To the layman, musical talent can seem a gift bestowed by the gods. But a musician knows that music means an infinite amount of work. A master class gives people who might not otherwise observe the process a chance to see the kind of work that's involved. That's what happened when famed cellist Janos Starker, 74, worked with Carter Dewberry, 23, on Schumann's Cello Concerto in Founders Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.

The quality of the instruments is improving these days for Nathaniel Anthony Ayers, the downtown Los Angeles street violinist who until recently was playing a beat-up fiddle with two strings missing. Several readers saw my column two Sundays ago and offered to donate instruments to the former Juilliard student, who did a double-take when I told him the news.

Classical music, it seems, is becoming a highbrow "Baywatch." The Web site www.beautyinmusic.com features revealing photographs of comely female musicians suggestively holding violins and cellos. The site, run by a Colorado singer-songwriter, calls itself "the ultimate guide to the hottest women in classical music."

"We Are the World," the all-star recording project that has raised millions for famine relief in Africa, did even better than expected in the 28th annual Grammy nominations by the 6,000 members of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. Nominations for the single--which features such stars as Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Lionel Richie and Cyndi Lauper under the group title of USA for Africa--as best record and best song were virtually assured.

It was a happy, sad, frustrating, exhilarating, discouraging, encouraging, soothing, frazzling, stimulating, depressing, uplifting, jolting, bracing, benumbing, painful, dull, exciting, hysterical, lackadaisical, exceptional, humdrum year. Just like 1986.
