   Dagmar Lübking brilliantly controlled the difficult and virtuous part.

from: Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, program: works by J. S. Bach   


   The articulation of the chorals was full of live and within the rhytmic motion the organist increased tension. A unity was created by seriously treating details, encouraged by a steady registration.

   CONCERT ON HIGH LEVEL - RICH BAROQUE SOUND PICTURES: The audience agreed: Such a violin soiree they never had attended before. ... In fully harmony Thomas Pietsch with several differently tuned violins and Dagmar Lübking on the harpsichord played compositions from the baroque period. ... How rich the sound of Ancient Music played on historical instruments could be, was demonstrated here.

» Gladsome in a double way: This CD respresents a little wonder, because of the instrument and especially because of Dagmar Lübking's thrilling way of playing. ... Because Lübking articulates very clear, plays in a transparent way, always finds a newly combined plenum, ... her interpretations are thrilling, full of life, she plays in a moving way and touches the soul. ... On this CD the listener will find new and very well done  things, ... wonderful music that fascinates and that has to be heared again and again.
