I cannot say, which recording is better, in sonically and artistic way: this one or the Starker/Sebok one, on Mercury. Surely both recordings belong a place among the best 50 recordings ever!

Now find yourself out, who’s the number one of these Brahms Cello-Sonatas.
Highly recommended.

  1. It’s true that the piano lacks a bit of body and bass but apart from this the sound is fabulous. What a presence ! Monsieur Fournier in my living room. Waow.

  2. Alf and Onkle, many thanks for this LP; I bougt this LP in 1966 and I lost it probably because of my several movings Now it is back with an outstanding sound.
    Trottar

  3. You’re not a “bastard-inside” man…you’re just a genius. But, like any human beings, geniuses share their joy with others. Brahms bless you !
