"The ebb and flow resulting from Ogawa's impressive cantabile control in the E minor Forth Suite's Allemande arguably surpasses even such luminaries as Blandine Verlet and Colin Tilney, while few harpsichordists match Ogawa's shapely lilt in the F major Second Suite's fugal Allegro, -

In all, her Handel Suites count among the best recorded versions."

Jed Distler, Gramophone

Handel 8 Great Suites Album

Asako Ogawa explores the rich variety of styles with rhythmic suppleness and lively feeling for characterisation. Her extrovert gestures are spontaneous and authoritative -

​⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Nicholas Anderson, BBC Music Magazine 

Handel 8 Great Suites album 

"She is reflective in slower movements and exciting in faster ones like the Courantes and Gigues, while retaining a sense of poise. - Overall, this recording is a considerable achievement and can be recommended for many gratifying insights."
