Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Amy Schwartz Moretti is recognized for her musical elegance and grace. Her playing has been described as "breathtakingly rich in tone and color" (St. Petersburg Times). Praised by the American Record Guide as a "brilliant soloist," she has received numerous accolades for her musical artistry and technique. Her extensive solo and chamber music appearances have taken her across the US and abroad, performing in venues from New York's Weill Recital Hall to Edinburgh Castle.

American Record Guide
Amy Schwartz Moretti teaches violin at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. She has assembled a program of mostly short works that are usually served up as encores these days, and it is well planned and well played. She has nicely elastic phrasing; she understands how to build up energy at the start of a phrase and then let it go a little later. The music flows beautifully in her hands. Very good sound.
