Hailed by the Washington Post as “exceptional…a deeply gifted musician, with a full, singing tone, near-flawless technique, and a natural lyricism,” Hee-Young Lim makes her superb recording debut with this exploration of French masterpieces. She relishes the contrasts of three great cello concertos – the glorious melodicism of Saint-Saëns, the dramatic, Spanish-infused rhythms of Lalo, and the jazz-inflected new world of Milhaud. Lim rounds out the album with two gorgeous encores – Offenbach’s “The Tears of Jacqueline” and Massenet’s “Meditation” from Thaïs.
