“Josephine Gaeffke ... presented herself not only as a virtuoso, but also as a sensitive interpreter. This was manifested not only again and again in her accompanying of the singers, but also in her solos. In Bach’s French Suite in Eb (BWV 815) she displayed a remarkable facility at using all the registers as well as an abundance of artistry. Therewith she astounded everyone with a rich palette of sounds and a range of expression not conventionally associated with the harpsichord. She could serve as a model for some pianists.” Nordbayerischer Kurier, 1998.

"sponsors had recruited a group of first-class local musicians that included ... harpsichordist Josephine Gaeffke."Welcomat, Philadelphia, 1991.
"Harpsichordist Josephine Gaeffke is the other young musician I am beginning to look forward to hearing at these events... Her solo...can leave you feeling there is something crude about the piano."Welcomat, 1988.
