Notes & Reviews:

Capriccio presents the debut album of up and coming Dutch cellist Harriet Krijgh. Among others, she received a first prize and the audience award at the Dutch Prinses Christina Concours, a first prize with excellence at the Austrian national competition Prima la Musica, a first prize and the Nicole Janigro Prize at the international Antonio Janigro Cello Competition in Croatia, as well as a first prize at the Fidelio competition in Vienna. As soloist artist Harriet is a member of the Live Music Now Foundation, which was established by Yehudi Menuhin.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
On the up side, the playing is excellent and emotional, particularly in the Franck; and the seven-minute piece by Jacques Offenbach is beautiful - originally for cello and orchestra. All in all, it is a lovely program played with warmth and polish.
