Yatess sensitivity to the subtleties and nuances of this music goes hand in hand with a wonderful technical facility… she seems to have a natural feel for French music and the rich, almost orchestral colours of Rameaus writing.
Early Music Today
‘…Sophie Yates confirms her credentials as one of Britain’s most talented Harpsichordists… Yates has a neat agile technique, phrases thoughtfully, with a restrained but telling use of rubato and ornamentation.’
‘The Daily Telegraph’ on CHAN 0644 (Handel)
‘…Yates is a persuasive advocate, her interpretations thoughtful and deeply felt.’
‘Classic FM’ on CHAN 0596
‘I have had the pleasure of reviewing a string of discs from Sophie Yates here, and , like those with uniformly high marks, her Rameau is also a palpable hit’.
Yates plays her well-chosen selection with great subtlety and sparkle.
‘If this disc fails to ignite your enthusiasm for the harpsichord and its repertoire, then probably nothing else will… Yates plays with refinement of taste that pays off well in the Italian Concerto.’
‘BBC Music Magazine’ on CHAN 0598 (La Sophie)
