Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the United States, a democracy concerned with human rights, attracted emigrants of all origins. The young nation embodied a land free from repression for the composers brought together here by Ophélie Gaillard in the spirit of humanism. After 'Alvorada', her globe-trotting cello leads us in the footsteps of Bloch, Korngold, Prokofiev, Chava Alberstein and Giora Feidmann, singing their exile. She gives us a film score (Korngold's Concerto), a prayer (From Jewish Life), an Hebraic narrative (Schelomo), a lullaby, a wedding dance... The spirit of celebration, tenderness, religious meditation: so many facets of daily life and the culture of several generations of Jewish immigrants.

Presto Classical

Katherine Cooper

May 2017

“The French cellist offers big-boned, passionate accounts of works exploring Jewish identity and diaspora in early twentieth-century America; the single-movement Korngold concerto in particular comes off with real silver-screen sweep and élan, and the much-recorded Bloch more than holds its own in the face of distinguished competition on disc.”

****

“a masterly, one-movement creation, full of driven, passionately songful inspiration and finds in Ophélie Gaillard a thrillingly committed champion”

BBC Music Magazine

August 2017

*****

“Gaillard’s glorious cello playing keeps the emotion raw and immediate throughout the programme, grabbing us by the scruff of the neck with a red-hot interpretation of Schelomo. Her tone is vivid, driven and lamenting. It could sound clichéd to say the music just pours out of her, but it really does…Gaillard gives [the Korngold] the performance of its life, angry, molten and impassioned.”
