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 (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: Requiem and 'Bach in Motion' (July 2019)

The OBF is an international event with international stars. Chief among them was British conductor Jane Glover, who led a masterful version of W.A. Mozart’s Requiem on opening night and the innovative dance concert “Bach in Motion.”

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.

Handel: Messiah, Cleveland Orchestra (December 2018)

Thank heavens for Jane Glover. Just when Handel’s “Messiah” was starting to gather dust, the acclaimed conductor brushed it off and polished it until it shone again with new magnificence.

Bach (November 2018)

[Jane Glover] has made the Christmas Oratorio something of a cause célèbre...This recent history is no doubt one factor in the remarkable polish and assurance brought to her compelling account Sunday night at North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie.

Handel & Mozart (September 2018)

The festive music proved well-suited for kicking off a new music season. Glover’s direction was just as sure and idiomatic as in the Requiem, and the performances even finer, with the conductor acutely balancing the chorus and orchestra throughout...Glover’s dexterous handling of “Zadok the Priest” showed her Handelian bona fides.

(Chicago Classical Review)

She brings a remarkable sense of gravitas to the podium. In her brief remarks before each piece, she reveals a keen intellect and insight into the music on offer, which sheds light on what makes her performance interpretations so remarkable

Mozart (January 2018)

One can sometimes take Glover’s excellence for granted in this repertoire. Monday’s vital and spirited performance showed once again why she is one of the finest Mozartians of our day. Tempos were ideal, balancing scrupulous and with fleet, stylish playing by the MOB orchestra, Glover underlined the score’s vivacity and wit with a natural idiomatic touch.
