“Muzio’s pianissimi were memorable. Not only did she employ them in tender, idyllic and elegiac moments, but she also adapted them to dramatic ends, so that on occasion the whole tension of a scene was carried on a slender thread of sound….No one has surpassed her in the variety of colour and gradation of tone of which she was capable; and her power of communication, achieved by the simplest of means, was remarkable.”
- J. B. Richards, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 1968
