American Record Guide: "Susanne Shapiro performs these sonatas with great animation and even humor (e.g. the abrupt, seemingly capricious silences in No. 8 in C, which opens the program). There is nothing fussy about her playing, yet every gesture seems right for the style...She demonstrates a mastery of phrasing and nuance; there is never a slack or shapeless moment...
"The French-style double harpsichord has a bright and robust sound, recorded here with good presence, yet without the annoying clatter that comes when harpsichords are recorded too closely. ;The sound here is sparkling and altogether delightful.
"Anyone with the least interest in Soler's sonatas will want this disc."

Continuo Magazine: "Susanne Shapiro shows a compelling affinity for Soler's brilliant style and Spanish Hauteur."

So. California Early Music Society: "All of the spanish folk elements are brought vividly to life by Ms. Shapiro's spectacular playing."
