Pierre Fournier & Friedrich Gulda - Complete works for cello & piano

Beethoven: Complete Works for Cello and Piano
12/20/2019

Recorded at Vienna’s Musikverein in 1959, this timeless recording comes from two of the masters of Beethoven. The pair first worked together in 1953 when Gulda performed the 5 Piano Concertos in Vienna. To spread out the program both Gulda and Fournier were to perform the Complete Works for Cello and Piano in-between each concerto. In rehearsals, Gulda famously turned to Fournier and stated, “Very beautiful, but very French.” to which Fournier replied, “For Schnabel and Kempff it did not sound Gallic.”
