Johanna Martzy's Mozart impresses not only due to its technical flawlessness, but also thanks to a tone that naturally blossoms from the breath of vibrant phrasing, her consummate mastery of the bow in all nuances from legato to spiccato, acultivated passion of expression that is always at the service of the musical line and knows no willful extravagances, creating an artistic oneness out of the inner fire and the objectivity of a composition's style.
- Christoph Schlüren
Violinist Johanna Martzy was hardly a prolific recording artists, which makes her few radio recordings desirable bonuses... A coupling of Mozart’s Third and Fourth Violin Concertos, from 1962 and 1956 respectively, both featuring sturdy support from the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra under Hans Müller-Kray, exhibits Mozart’s forthright approach and invariable warmth, performance that anticipate the stylistic unfussiness of our own time rather than Romantic manners of Martzy’s era - The Gramophone Magazine
