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.”

Classical Ear

****

“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.”

MusicWeb International

7th July 2017

“Throughout the programme one is aware of Ophélie Gaillard’s acute sense of engagement, stylish and expressive playing, conveying a feeling this is music to be enjoyed.”

The Strad

July 2017

“Achingly beautiful music that is an ideal canvas for her impassioned and deeply expressive playing … a most exhilarating performance … Gaillard has an undoubted affinity with Korngold’s sumptuously beautiful music”
