Press Quotes

“This record is an absolute knockout, a must for anyone with an interest in mid-18th century keyboard writing... This is great harpsichord playing, and perfectly suited to the spirit of the work.” (Fanfare Magazine)


 The recording with Preethi de Silva is among the most fascinating releases on the Titanic label, and, consequently, one of the most important harpsichord recordings available. The interpretation displays stupendous vitality and virtuosity. the recording technique, too, once again, is outstanding.” (Early Music Today)
