David W Moore
American Record Guide, September 2012

…the playing is excellent and emotional, particularly in the Franck; and the seven-minute piece by Jacques Offenbach is beautiful—originally for cello and orchestra. All in all, it is a lovely program played with warmth and polish. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online

The Strad, September 2012

In this tried and tested repertoire, Harriet Krijgh gives a fervent account of the Franck Violin Sonata in its cello guise, entirely appropriate to the passionate and fiery invention. Her reconstructed Hendrik Jacobs cello of 1690 yields a honeyed yet strong quality of timbre that suits this music. At the same time, the sensitive and introspective passages are eloquently delivered with impressive ensemble enhanced by a warm recording.

Krijgh musters an elegant charm in the golden cameo pieces by Fauré…

The melancholic but attractive work by Offenbach is less frequently heard, but is again compellingly and lyrically delivered… © 2012 The Strad
