Press Quotes

“Her ornaments in the repeats are stylish and the choice of registration seems apt… I found her lyrical playing engaging from the start… This is a capable and sensitive player who is intelligently inside the music, and quite capable of drawing us into it.” (Early Music Review)

“Ogawa is incredibly precise and nimble… impressive two CD set” (Classical Notes)

“…her playing radiated excitement, and a vivid sense of the character of each individual piece… Particular pleasures include the Gavottes, the Sarabandes in Partitas 3 and 4, the lovely breadth and grandeur of the closing Toccata and the graceful treatment of the final gigue…” (BBC Music Magazine)

“A haprsichord prodigy!” (4/5 – Classique HD)
