The 27-member Swiss Baroque Troupe supports her with wide-awake, crisply incisive playing: an enterprise worthy of the prize." (Hifi & Records, 03/2021, Attila Csampai)

So many qualities, combined to a rare degree of perfection, elevate this version to the rank of reference. " (Le Diapason, 02/2021, Michel Stockhem)
