Product Description

One of the most eminent cellists of the 20th century, Pierre Fournier was known for his exceptional musicianship and since his death in 1986 is still revered for his warm, vocal tone and the subtlety and elegance of his playing. This 10-CD compilation of the Frenchman's 1939-1959 recordings includes several rarities, in addition to gems by the likes of Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorák, and Saint-Saëns.

Alongside the Complete Works for Cello and Piano by Ludwig van Beethoven, this set features cello concertos by Dvorák, Schumann, Saint-Saëns and Haydn, the Double Concerto by Brahms, Tchaikovsky's popular Variations on a Rococo Theme, arrangements of works by Couperin, Vivaldi and Boccherini, and chamber music by Schubert, Chopin, Bach, Rimsky-Korsakov, Fauré and Ravel. Amongst other leading artists of the period that appear in these recordings are Friedrich Gulda, David Oistrakh, Gerald Moore, Sir Malcolm Sargent, Rafael Kubelík, Walter Susskind, Alceo Galliera and Karl Münchinger.

Personnel: Pierre Fournier (cello), Gerald Moore, Friedrich Gulda, Jean Hubeau, Ernest Lush (piano), David Oistrach (violin), Philharmonia Orchestra, Alceo Galliera (conductor), Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Karl Münchinger (conductor) and others

A long-standing favourite 'cellist, Pierre Fournier's interpretative range is well represented here. Technically brilliant, Fournier has also intellectual muscle aplenty, and it is wholly at the service of the various composers' intentions. Do relish his wonderful collaboration with Oistrakh in the Brahms Double Concerto, and his quite sublime Dvorak. In sum, this is a top-notch compilation.
