Truly phenomenal performances by two formidable Beethoven interpreters at the top of their game. Fournier’s aristocratic cello playing is beautifully matched by Gulda’s improvisatory approach to the piano line. 2CDs at super budget price.
“Despite old-fashioned sound - clear and well-balanced but artificially spotlit - these performances remain alert, elegant and firmly etched.”
“The combination of French clarity and elegance and Viennese intelligence and humanity in these artists results in interpretations which avoid all self-conscious earnestness and hieratic pose (the bane of all
Beethoven performance) but achieve maturity, freshness and subtlety. Rarely have two artists formed a more sensitive team.”
