Review By Gil French,American Record Guide,January 2010

Schornsheim performs on harpsichord, fortepiano, and organ. In 1982 Wisconsin-born violinist Utiger left the US for Europe to specialize in historical performance practice and in 1995 founded this group (16 members with 2-2-2-1-1 strings).

I’d swear that the harpsichord and organ (without pedals) used here are capable of dynamic swells and decrescendos because of the way Schornsheim juxtaposes styles, holds notes for different lengths, and turns a phrase. (They aren’t.) Her articulation is simply amazing, yet it never interferes with the lyricism of a melody line.


Review By Giv Cornfield,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,September 2009

This is a tour-de-force for Ms Schornsheim, a powerhouse virtuoso who plays with great assurance and style, and is supported by an excellent ensemble. The works are all from Hob. XVIII: organ concertos Nos. 1, 8 & 10, harpsichord concertos Nos. 2, 3 & 5, and for the fortepiano Nos. 4 & 11. Conductor Mary Utiger is at one with the soloist, and the keyboard solos sound bright and clear—hat’s off to the recording engineers too! (Could it be that this—and the Leclair recording above—presages a trend?)
