Notes & Reviews:

This set contains a selection of the recordings by the great French violinist focusing on his prowess as a chamber musician. Ferras was born in 1933 of musical parentage - his father had been a violinist and a pupil of Marcel Chailley, a devotee and friend of Saint-Saens. This set is a superb portrait of a great artist, who was gifted beyond anyone's wildest dreams but lost the fight with his inner demons of depression and alcohol dependency.

Ferras was born in 1933 of musical parentage - his father had been a violinist and a pupil of Marcel Chailley, a devotee and friend of Saint-Saens. Though Christian's talent was not in dispute, his father was extremely pushy and the undue pressure he exerted on his young son probably led to the mental instability that led to Ferras's suicide in 1982. At the age of 8, Ferras enrolled at the Paris Conservatoire and in 1943 won first prize. This set is a superb portrait of a great artist, who was gifted beyond anyone's wildest dreams but lost the fight with his inner demons of depression and alcohol dependency.
