Alison Balsom plays Haydn & Mozart Symphonies 36 & 38: Music of the Baroque, Chicago (January 2020)

A quintessential Mozartean, Glover remains unimpeachable in this domain. Her reading of the Linz Symphony was especially of note: lean and spirited, yet brilliantly balancing the drama and refinement that inherently coexist in the score...Glover’s sensitivity for ensemble texture kept the siciliano buoyant despite the ballast of the winds and timpani, and her careful control of the dynamics illuminated clever variations in each statement of the amiable melody.

Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro, Aspen Music Festival (August 2019)

The conductor Jane Glover chose ideal tempos and maintained a fine balance throughout, also playing the harpsichord recitatives and demonstrating her rich experience in Mozart and Figaro in particular.

Bach: Mass in B-Minor  Music of the Baroque, Chicago (September 2019)

The Mass in B-minor...certainly received a masterly treatment by the Music of the Baroque Chorus and Orchestra, whose season-opening performance at Chicago’s Harris Theater September 14 drew roaring ovations for all the performers — from conductor Jane Glover to the four vocal soloists, to the 34-member chorus, and right through to the violinists and bassoonists.

Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro, Aspen Music Festival (August 2019)

Mozart’s music carries the day, and the success of this production owes the most to Glover and the 41-piece orchestra.

Mozart: Così fan tutte, Lyric Opera of Kansas City (March 2019)

Conductor Jane Glover, whose knack for Mozartean wit and style is matched by few musicians I know, helped everyone sound wonderful: even the Kansas City Symphony, which for once sounded as good in the pit as it does in Helzberg Hall next door (and perhaps even better).

Ravel, Bizet, Vivaldi, Mozart: Minnesota Orchestra (Feburary 2019)

On the podium is Jane Glover, a Commander of the British Empire who’s been renowned in England for decades as leader of the London Mozart Players, a BBC host and globetrotting opera conductor...I must admit that I didn’t go into the evening expecting that a Vivaldi concerto would steal the show, but... it was a crisp and captivating performance.
