Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Elizabeth Anderson's latest compact disc may well prove startling. Certainly, it is one of the most delightfully entertaining recitals on the instrument I've heard in a long time.” - Neville Cohn, Oz Arts Review

“... a reminder that classical music doesn't need to be serious all the time ... Elizabeth Anderson marries her taste to a good sense of humour and delivers a fascinating program that ranges from Bach to boogie.” - Tony Way, The Age Greenguide

"Yeah, baby! ... there is enough music of quality here to hold one's interest, and plenty of surprises along the way. As with the first CD, Anderson plays the harpsichord with great proficiency and spirit, and manages to inject a fair amount of period
Read more awareness into the older, more “normal” pieces. Her sidemen and -women back her to the hilt, and it's all been captured in state-of-the-art sound. My problem in recommending this disc is that it's easily the equal of the first. I'd love to nominate both for the 2011 Want List... if you're a lover of the unusual and offbeat, definitely consider the acquisition of both CDs for your library. " - Christopher Brodersen (Fanfare)

"Anderson is a dynamic and imaginative player. I enjoy her energetic rendition of Mozart's Rondo alla Turca. She also has a sensitive, introverted side and several of the pieces... show her in that light." - Katz (American Record Guide) Read less
