  • “This is something exceptional. Here is a disc of music by Mozart, played by a most gifted 12-year-old (born in 1987) on Mozart's own violin - dating from 1735 and owned by his sister Nannerl - the very instrument he used as a child. The fortepiano used dates from 1790 and is also from the Mozarteum. So far as the sonatas are concerned, we have a very authentic Mozartian sound, and, so far as I am concerned, impressive and convincing reading wholly in accordance with the music. There is something profoundly musical and artless about Maria-Elisabeth Lott's playing and she is superbly partnered by Sontraud Speidel, whose style and phrasing are at one with her youthful colleague. Make no mistake, this is very fine Mozart playing - a comment which applies to both artists.” (International Record Review)
