Background on this item -
Ofra Harnoy CM (born January 31, 1965, Hadera, Israel) is a Canadian cellist. Harnoy moved with her family to Toronto in 1971. When she was six, she began cello lessons with her father, Jacob Harnoy. Her teachers included Vladimir Orloff, William Pleeth, Pierre Fournier, Jacqueline du Pré, and Mstislav Rostropovich.

Harnoy made her professional debut as a soloist with an orchestra at age ten. Her solo-orchestral and recital debuts at Carnegie Hall in 1982 brought her public and critical acclaim.

Harnoy performed and recorded the world premiere of the Offenbach Cello Concerto in 1983 and the North American premiere of the Bliss Cello Concerto in 1984. She also made the world premiere recordings of several Vivaldi concertos. In 1987 Harnoy joined the roster of RCA Victor Red Seal, and recorded several best selling albums.

Harnoy has played in many genres of music. She has played with artists such as; Plácido Domingo, Sting, Igor Oistrakh, Loreena McKennitt, Jesse Cook and many more.

CONDITION Details:
The JACKET:
The LP jacket is in Near Mint condition!
The jacket has NO seam splits - it is completely intact.
The jacket has NO drill holes or saw marks of any kind.
There is NO hand writing on the front or back of the jacket, but it does have the remains of a price sticker at the front, top, right corner.
The cover has clean and sharp colors - see pictures with this listing for more detail.

The LP (vinyl) itself:
The LP is in Near MINT condition as well!!
This is the near mint copy you have always wanted in your collection - any super picky audiophile would be happy with this one!
The LP retains much of the original gloss and sheen!
The record has NO visible marks that we could discern. Perhaps a very light spider mark or two. We play tested the LP on our audio system and it performed in Near Mint minus condition - no noises / sounds that detracted from the performances in any significant way. 
There are NO significant spindle marks on the record labels.

Please understand that this is a vintage LP record - as such, one cannot expect the vinyl to sound like a brand new, audiophile pressing! Some noise is inevitable - for best results, always properly clean your LPs before playing them.

The LP is an audiophile quality pressing (any collector of fine MFSL, half speeds, direct to discs, Japanese/UK pressings etc., can attest to the difference a quality pressing can make to an audio system).

A Short Note About LP GRADING -
Mint {M} = Only used for sealed items.
Near Mint {NM} = Virtually flawless in every way.
Near Mint Minus {NM-} = Item has some minor imperfections, some audible.
Excellent {EXC} = Item obviously played and enjoyed with some noise.
Very Good Plus {VG+} = Many more imperfections which are noticeable and obtrusive.

Don't let this rarity slip by!!!
