Ophélie Gaillard walks in the footsteps of Jewish immigrants on Exiles
Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the United States was a land of freedom open to the world. As a democracy concerned with human rights, it attracted emigrants of all origins. The young nation embodied a land of redemption for the composers brought together by cellist Ophélie Gaillard. She walks in the footsteps of Bloch, Korngold, Prokofiev, Chava Alberstein and Giora Feidmann, singing of their exile, whether suffered or deliberately chosen. This program reflects the many facets of daily life and allows the cultures of several generations of Jewish immigrants to speak through Gaillard's cello.
