Notes & Reviews:

Legendary cellist Pierre Fournier and pianist Friedrich Gulda team up in recordings of the Beethoven cello sonatas.

One of Pierre Fournier's great recordings - arguably the best recording of the Beethoven Complete Cello works - that will form part of our Fournier 100 celebrations (the anniversary of his birth falls on 24 June this year). The recordings were made when Fournier was at his technical peak, and partnered by the keenly-insightful Friedrich Gulda. The CD booklet includes a fascinating memoir by the son of Pierre Fournier - Jean Fonda - on "Fournier and Fritz [Gulda]", plus a couple of delightful Fifties photos !
