Notes & Reviews:

Euripides interpreted "Elegy", the grand ancient song of lament, as a "barbaric, Asian cry of sorrow". To some extent an exotic sound coloration also infuses the elegiac compositions of the European masters assembled for this CD. 23 year old Dutch cellist Harriet Krijgh is one of today's most exciting and promising young cellists. She has been invited on to the "Rising Star" series of the European Concert Hall Organization (ECHO) for the 2015/16 season, nominated by Musikverein and Konzerthaus Vienna. The included Bonus-DVD shows features a new documentary about Ms. Krjigh's life and career.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
This is a beautifully sad program containing more elegiac cello music than I have ever heard played on one occasion. Krigh is a fine person to play it. She has a sensitive yet not depressing way of going about this music that keeps it from becoming a curse. The orchestra plays with fine balances, and the recording is beautifully warm and rich in sonority. Krigh has made at least three previous recordings for Capriccio, none that I have heard. You may not wish to invest in a sad program such as this one, but it is beautifully played and contains a lot of lovely music.
