Christian Ferras

8.99 €

What is immediately evident when listening to these never published before German radio recordings is the lush, tonal beauty Christian Ferras produces and his magnificent intonation. Needless that hardly you will find such level of lyrical expressiveness, vibrant musicality and enraptured inspiration. In the Tartini evil’s trill sonata and Mozart’s violin sonata K.526, which he never recorded commercially, Ferras is accompanied by Pierre Barbizet whom he had met in 1949 at the International Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud Competition, and who would accompany Ferras for thirty years. Both offer readings of unforced musicality and sheer rightness. They are wonderfully attuned to each other.
