Strauss: Don Quixote - Fournier, Karajan. Antonin Dvorak* / Pierre Fournier jpc. Bach: Cello Suites - Pierre Fournier. Reviews: 1. Related titles: 10 show all. Review by mwgfrg February 5, 7 of 7 found this review helpful. This is one Antonin Dvorak* / Pierre Fournier my very favorites.
Probably no one knew or knows this music better than Szell, and he has the Berlin Philharmonic to work with, no less. Fournier was a very elegant cellist, and while he could match practically anyone technically, he does not dig into the solo part as Starker and Rostropovich did. The result is a bit more lyrical an interpretation than the others, but Szell keeps the intensity level high. The sound was always quite respectable DG analog, and Esoteric's transfer is a worthy one.
The comparisons as I read them seem to favor the SHM-SACDs as cleaner and more detailed, and while I would generally agree with those conclusions, George Szell the Esoterics nevertheless seem to convey more of the sheer power Spinning Jenny - Skyclad - Tracks From The Wilderness the recordings--especially on the Tchaikovsky Symphonies.
They sometimes seem to project the sense of the orchestra in a defined hall space a bit more strongly than the Universal issues do. The reason I mention this is that this aspect of the Esoteric transfer sound is very much what the Dvorak recording conveys.
The sense of the orchestra in a defined space is quite strong. The Beethoven sonata is equally excellent, but is not as challenging to transfer so is not that much different from the CD version.
Highly recommended if you can justify spending your money on He - Fausto Papetti - Soft And Sweet overpriced Japanese reissues. Was this review helpful to you? Ludwig van Beethoven - Cello Sonata No.
