HARRIET KRIJGH - Haydn: Cello Concertos 1 & 2
After her highly appraised Debut CD with French Music for cello and piano (Capriccio C5131), Harriet Krijgh presents on her 2nd CD her virtuosity and technical finesse with the new recording of both Cello Concertos by Joseph Haydn.
„…and with great joy the soloist also brought her cello concert in D-sharp: the 21 year old Dutch Harriet Krijgh, at the moment still a student in Vienna, mastered it with technical finesse, pleasantly singing tone and skilled, engaging stage presence. Remarkable is also her surety in the highest positions.“ Wiener Zeitung, Austria 2012 04 27
In view of her competitors, how does the merely 21 year old Dutch cellist realize the fact that her cello sounds a trace rounder, fuller and more poetic?

“What else to wait for, when at the mere age of 20 she can already play all the pieces on her beautifully sounding Hendrik Jacobs Cello? What is more, Harriet Krijgh never shows off her virtuosity, yet is always in track with the music. Her warm, unforced and at the same time strong tone is seductive, her interpretation sensitive and thoughtful. Bravissimo!”

Harriet Krijgh works with much compassion and displays that already at age 21 one can understand a great deal of passionate expression…
