Cellist Johanna Martzy is joined by pianist Jean Antonietti for this recording of Sonatas by Beethoven and Mozart.
The last and by no means least of the modern Hungarian school of violin playing, Johanna Martzy made relatively few commercial recordings. But all of them were made in her prime, and most of them acquired a legendary, and cult status after her short career. This Deutsche Grammophon - Beethoven(op.30-3) and Mozart (KV 376) Sonatas with pianist Jean Antonietti is no exception; she was devoted to Beethoven and Mozart, and her recitals often included the Sonatas by two composers. Martzy and Antonietti played two sonatas beautifully, their interpretations are well balanced, transparent and, in the best sense of the word, simple.
