. . . [this recording] was classic when it came out, and remains so to this date.

Fournier is splendidly assured in technique and warm in tone throughout, and is excellently recorded . . . Fournier leans and breathes his way around the notes, always flexibly responsive . . . the warmth in Fournier's playing is so generous . . . [Fournier brings a kind of intensity] to virtually every note -- a glow that's almost palpable . . . [in the Third Suite, Fournier] employs expressive inflections, shifting grades of dynamic and pulse that sway as the music proceeds . . . taking in the exquisite tiny detail . . . They create a warm sense of familiarity between the listener and the music . . . that is not only what Fournier does but is also the reason it has stood the test of time.
