Rob Haskins
American Record Guide, October 2000

"Rowland's Soler set has reached Volume 6, with Sonatas 4 (G), 56 (F), 70 and 71 (A minor), 96 (E-flat), 100 and 103 (C minor), 102- 104 (D minor), 109 (F), and 111 (D). His performance standards are still on a high level. The interpretations are lively and exuberant. Three high points for me: the F-major Sonata (109 in Rubio's numbering system), with its gracious, Mozartean lilt; 70 in A minor with its restless energy and sparkling passages in parallel thirds; and Sonata 71 with its unexpected but expressive rubato. The instrument is a two-manual harpsichord by Robert Deegan after Pascal Taskin. The sound is fine and there are informative liner notes."
