Sonatina in A minor, Op. 137 No. 2
The Bach Sonatas & Partitas for unaccompanied violin by Johanna Martzy was the very first release for the Electric Recording Company back in March 2012. It has always been our intention to give full justice to the superb Schubert works for Violin & Piano Martzy recorded with Jean Antonietti in 1954.
Martzy proves to be an exemplary and virtuosic interpretor of Schubert in these beautiful recordings, providing a rare level of balance and poise in the delivery as she works her way through the canvas. The performance can be truly appreciated in its rawest and most exposed form captured directly from the original master tapes at the ERC studio.
ERC will not undertake a repress of any release at any future point.
