“... the periods that match his character best are romanticism and contemporary music. They give full scope for his ideal: an impulsive, explosive possession of the music and emotional involvement in it. “It is alien to him to observe spiritless precision or keep a distance from the work,” Igor Podracký said of the young pianist in 1975. Vladimír Čížik commented as follows on his recital during the 1984 Bratislava Music Festival: “...delicate sound culture, natural tunefulness, as well as tension of lines, featuring strong imagination – all of these characterise Zamborský’s specific conception...” In 1992 this is how Igor Berger saw the mature artist performing Mozart: “ ...what typifies this conception is sonorousness and directness, and an effort to be rid of the petty tinkering with detail, ornament and phrase. Hence Zamborský subscribes to the sonorous, singing Mozart...”
