His many recordings consistently garner glowing reviews and awards. Justin is famed for his velveteen touch, faultless technique, effortless virtuosity, and exquisite interpretations.
Guido Fischer, Rondo Magazine: Justin Taylor “.. is greatly sensitive to the pleasures of music. He knows how to draw out all the finesse and clarity of the ornaments, the fury of the attacks, and his way of playing has a seductive charm to it.”
Gramophone.co.uk: Justin Taylor’s performance is “…an exhilarating vindication of the harpsichord as a solo instrument for music old and new.”

Philippe Venturini: ‘Justin Taylor has all the qualities needed to triumph …skill at bringing out the sound of the harpsichord, his iron-hard technique, his velvet-like touch, and his obviously sense of theatricality.”
Classics Today: “…an artist of fluid, flawless technique, bold ideas, and as much sensitivity as the instrument will allow. (…) Taylor exploits the wide variety of style and temperaments… keeping melody recognizable and harmony secure amid the fantastic relentless swirl of ornaments.”
