"Sylvia Čápová-Vizváry has exceptional technical resources (a wide hand span) and plenty of temperament, enabling her to master the difficulties even of the most demanding piano pieces. She feels at home in high romantic flights, poetry, passion, drama and bravura, and always strives to take a new look at the pieces performed. The audience can motivate her to make full use of her personal and artistic potential and thus contribute to an impressive performance. With her accumulated experience, Čápová-Vizváry has been increasingly able to control her presentation and to draw on it when representing specific features of a style of particular composers. She has an appetite for subtle overtones, while also being able to reach the metallic high peaks that might seem reserved for men." (Vladimír Čížik: Dictionary of Slovak Concert Art Vol. I)
