Upon hearing a live performance in 2012, John von Rhein wrote in the Chicago Tribune, "His deep understanding of what makes "Winterreise" the supreme challenge of a lieder singer's art came through in his caring and musicianly performance... His interpretation clearly was the result of serious, detailed study... Ever the supportive and probing collaborator, Katz was alive to every nuance in the vocal and piano parts. The legendary accompanist was a marvel when it came to translating Schubert's raucous ravens, galloping horses and rustling branches into musical sound."
