Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ofra Harnoy has established herself as one of the greatest cellists on the world’s concert stage. She has won many awards and distinctions for her recordings, including 5 JUNO Awards, including Instrumental Artist of the Year and Best Classical Album of the Year in Canada. After taking a career hiatus to raise her children and then deal with a near career-ending shoulder injury, Ofra Harnoy started performing again in 2018. This album presents a number of tried and true Baroque favourites on the cello, like Bach’s “Air" from Orchestral Suite #3, “Bist Du Bei Mir”, as well as some slightly lesser known gems. An amazing recording and an inspiring comeback. Ofra Harnoy has established herself as one of the greatest cellists on the world’s concert stage.
