It is particularly instructive, following the terrific studio recordings of the concertos by Mendelssohn to hear the exciting live concert recording made in Stuttgart a few years later with the chief conductor of the RSO, Hans Muller-Kray (1959) 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

''The young Ida Haendel was technically on top form in Stuttgart in 1953-55 when she broadcast the Mendelssohn Concerto under the baton of Hans Muller-Kray, her approach, as ever, sweet-toned, fiery... always her inimitable self.'' - The Gramophone Magazine
