In an essay Glenn Gould referred to Johanna Martzy as "an artist who has always seemed to me to be, at least in North America, the most underrated of the great violinists of our age." - And indeed it has only been a few years that Johanna Martzy's all too few recordings have made a spectacular revival, so that now she has a place among the great violinists of the 20th Century - a place she really deserves. This albums presents two Sonatines by Franz Schubert in which Johanna Martzy is accompanied by her long-time pianist Jean Antonietti and finally the great Dvorak Violin Concerto accompanied by the RIAS Symphony Orchestra Berlin conducted by Ferenc Fricsay, recorded in 1953, which is the reference work on this album.
