180-gram audiophile vinyl pressed at Pallas in Germany

Cut at Emil Berliner Studio and mastered from the original tapes of SWR Music!

Johanna Martzy is one of the greatest violinist of the 20th century alongside the likes of Ida Haendel, Ginette Neveu, Erica Morini and more. There are primarily two factors causing her posthumous reputation to lag behind her true standing: Her international career was relatively brief and the repertoire she performed was and remained very narrow.

However, the recordings we still have from her testify to a violinist and musician of the highest class who was not possessed by a demon compelling her to provide the world with as extravagant an interpretation as possible, but with unleashed verve, inspired articulation and perfectly clear control as a devoted medium of musical energies.

It is particularly instructive, following the terrific studio recordings of the concertos by Brahms, to hear the exciting live concert recordings made in Stuttgart with Gunter Ward and appreciate what a phenomenal violinist Johanna Martzy was, without any thought of grandstanding or pretension, always authentic, fully emphatic and with a select, cultivated taste. — from liner notes by Christoph Schluren
