The US magazine High Fidelity wrote in July 1959 about a record of Beethoven sonatas for violin and piano performed by Makanowitzky and Lee “Both these performers are very skilled and sensitive young artists, and their collaboration here is an impressive display of their attainments. One need only compare these recordings with some others by musicians of considerably greater reputation to find that in matters of refinement Makanowitzky plays with a silken bow and unerring taste, while Lee is not just an accompanist but a colleague of equal gifts. The performances on the initial record of the pair make it one of the best buys of the year”. Our discovery of rare German radio recordings brings their artistry back into the present.
