Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the United States, a democracy concerned with human rights, attracted emigrants of all origins. The young nation embodied a land free from repression for the composers brought together here by Ophélie Gaillard in the spirit of humanism. After 'Alvorada', her globe-trotting cello leads us in the footsteps of Bloch, Korngold, Prokofiev, Chava Alberstein and Giora Feidmann, singing their exile. She gives us a film score (Korngold's Concerto), a prayer (From Jewish Life), an Hebraic narrative (Schelomo), a lullaby, a wedding dance… The spirit of celebration, tenderness, religious meditation: so many facets of daily life and the culture of several generations of Jewish immigrants.
