“Long before classical music was stodgy, it was sometimes dangerous, unpredictable and bizarre… Music of the Spheres conjured up a little of that old magic… delivered with gusto and the fluency of true improvisers.”
–Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

“Both technically and musically admirable violin-playing… brilliant… a queen of coloratura!”
–Mittelbayerische Zeitung

 “Jeanne Johnson played … with great ornamental flourishes”
–Bernard Holland, New York Times

 “stunningly effusive”
–Bloomington Herald-Times

“sensitive homogeneity… discreet yet very convincing virtuosity”
“How like an intimate prayer Ms. Johnson let this bewitching work die away…”

–Online Musik Magazin

“a true delight…  the musicians grace all the sonatas with sparkle and personality…  Johnson, whose sound is both muscular and elegant, begins her Muffat with wonderfully tremulous breathing notes;  in her Biber, she dashes off with astonishing ease ornaments that surprise the ear in the best way – technically daring and melodically inventive without breaking the stylistic surface.  Blendulf’s Gabrieli is gorgeously lush, with finely detailed gestures spun out into spacious, living phrases.  Tanaka brings her Bach toccata across with a fine, sure touch.”
