Notes & Reviews:

The Observer, 8th July 2013
To play to this standard at such an age is little short of miraculous...Her account of Bach's Chaconne, old-fashioned to our ears perhaps, has the sense of an intense personal journey. The technique may no longer be flawless but a lifetime's immersion in music informs every bar.

Sunday Times, 14th July 2013
I doubt a profounder realisation of the violin's expressive capacity is available from a living performer than Haendel's on this recital disc...Her luxuriant, large-toned, altogether large-minded phrasing, and its minutely meditated inflection, make the music seem constantly surprising, freshly composed.

MusicWeb International, 30th August 2013
Many of the attributes that distinguished her earlier playing are evident. There is the beautiful, rich tone, and the level of musicianship, especially in such a work as the Bach Chaconne. Also present is the myriad spectrum of colour, which has always been an outstanding feature of her playing. This is a superb achievement, and collectors and followers of Haendel's career will want these recordings.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2013
Haendel plays favourite virtuoso warhorses with the zest and sparkle of a note-hungry teenager.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
She's lost none of her powerful presence, nor her ability to transmit these pieces with style and with an element of showmanship that takes us back to the 19th-century heyday of virtuosity...Haendel still has much to offer.
