“Thrilling sound… lucid yet powerful interpretations [of the Bach]… masterly performance [of the Handel]… the whole programme can be recommended with confidence. Divine Art’s recording quality is superb.” – Geoffrey Crankshaw (Musical Opinion)
“This engaging live recital grabbed and held our attention… fresh rhythmic liveliness, telling agogics and a predominantly light articulation… has given unique pleasure and satisfaction” – (P.G.Woolf (Musical Pointers)
“The English Suite receives an expository treatment, with the lucid phrasing emphasized by crisp articulation and well-placed agogic accents. The Scarlatti Sonata is particularly well characterized. Crossland really cuts loose [in the Handel], with a performance full of intensity and, at times, real pathos” – Robert Levett (International Record Review)
“Crossland’s playing is highly demonstrative with powerful bass strokes, strongly articulated phrasing and incisive accenting. She provides an exceptional performance [of the English Suite]… a confident interpretation of storytelling proportion. The disc is highly rewarding and especially recommended to fortepiano enthusiasts” - Don Satz (MusicWeb/ClassicalNet)
“Jill Crossland has the ability to present Baroque and early Classical music with a depth of response that brings it alive and to make it timeless… it is quite a shock to encounter Crossland playing a fortepiano. Plenty of Crossland magic to be savoured.” – Colin Anderson (Classical Source)
