Over the years, Martin Fischer-Dieskau has conducted nearly 100 orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Moscow State Orchestra, Orchestre national de France, the NHK Tokyo, the Tokyo Philharmonic, and the New Japan Philharmonic.
He has led all the major orchestras of Germany and Scandinavia, as well as many Italian and Spanish orchestras. A scion of the 19th-century classical music tradition, he adds to this his keen sense and innovative flair for unusual and varied programming.

She offers us "exciting expressiveness in rich colours" - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
The Nordbayerischer Kurier finds her "the absolute apogee of mellifluous and feminine feeling for sound", even a "Singing Swan of the cello". Especially prized by the music press and audiences the world over is Joanna's bewitching power of expression, which she exemplifies in all musical styles.
