For once the record company really did get the title right! Fournier really was an 'aristocrat' of the cello - his tone has never been surpassed. At his best he was one of the greats - although he does come unstuck with his very idiosyncratic performance of the Elgar Concerto. Both Du Pre and Lloyd Webber are better bets for that.

The Fabulous Pierre Fournier 29 Sept. 2006
By Michael Brad Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Before I begin writing this review I would like to pose a question to the folks at DG/Universal. Among the great French classical musicians of the 20th Century, is Monique Haas more fondly remembered in the United States than Pierre Fournier? Clearly the answer must be yes, because you have decided to reissue your new Monique Haas Original Masters box set domestically while this recent Pierre Fournier is only available as a pricey import. UNI, you once again leave me scratching my head at your marketing decisions, but then I never was very good at judging popularity contests.

Ultimately, the music is all that matters, and there are some fine examples on this 6CD set, "Pierre Fournier: Aristocrat of the Cello." Fournier was originally an EMI aritst (see my review of "Les Introuvables de Pierre Fournier"), and he did not join DG until 1959, after a five year stint with Decca. Of course that means all of the recordings contained within this set are in glorious golden age stereo! And you really do get a little bit of everything -- from Vivaldi and Haydn to Schubert and Stravinsky, from Concertos and Sonatas to "Encore" bonbons, and everything in between. The highlights of this set for me continue to be the Dvorak and Elgar Concertos, recordings I have enjoyed for years as they have been previously available on a single title (see my review). In the "new to me" department, I would have to say the deepest impressions were those left by the CPE Bach Concerto, the Brahms Sonatas with Rudolf Firkusny, and the various material on disc five made with son Jean Fonda on piano.

In all, the Pierre Fournier "Original Masters" set is a most welcome addition to a great series of box sets. I only wish that Universal would make this set as universally available as the one featuring Monique Haas.

this great cellist at the height of his powers 7 Jan. 2008
By John Walz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Pierre Fournier belongs to a small handful of truly great string players of the 20th century. His beautiful sound, impeccable taste and musicianship, and perhaps most importantly, his deep respect for the music, places him in a unique position among solo cellists. These recordings from Deusche Gramaphon capture him at his zenith. The Dvorak Concerto with Szell and the Berlin Philharmonic is certainly my "desert island" cello recording. This is a collection every music lover should have.

Wonderful collection of one of the greatest cellists ever. 14 April 2014
By Juan Jose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am a professional cellist and Pierre Fournier has always been one of my cello idols. Incredible phrasing, beauty and richness of tone, intense expressivity... he had all the qualities.
This collection by DG brings us some of Fournier's recordings for this brand which I don't think were available recently (Brahms Sonatas, Chopin Sonata, Franck Sonata...I never found them before). I wish the set also included the Beethoven Sonatas with Kempff, but you won't regret buying this box. I highly recommend it.

It's just so! 1 May 2011
By fCh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Can you be precise and emotional? Can you make the solo instrument that part of the orchestra family that from time to time pierces the horizon only to be reunited into a new adventure? Can you be smart and playful? Can you [...?]

Can you pull me out of what I'm doing to write this review considering that I spend about 20-30 hours with music in a week?

If the answer is yes, you must know what I'm talking about, for you've been introduced to that class of musician defined by rigor and distinction.

If the answer is no, that can only mean you have not given yourself a chance to experience the musical paradise. Don't take any more time, let's meet there and have Fournier guide us. Then you'll agree, it's just so!
