“Elly Ney’s art was founded on a powerful technique, a tone of luminous depth and a spontaneity which could be the despair of her musical collaborators….it was as a Beethoven interpreter that she was most valued by her contemporaries. For her, a Beethoven recital was like an incursion into the holy of holies; she sought to establish a three-way communion among the composer, the audience and herself. In our secular age, such an approach may seem to belong to another world, yet we ignore the spiritual dimension of Beethoven at our peril….Ney was a striking figure who created a memorable impression on the concert platform – not least by reading the Heiligenstädter Testament at her Beethoven recitals.”

- Tully Potter, liner notes to Biddulph Ney CD
