Cellist Pierre Fournier is accompanied by pianist Lamar Crowson for compositional works written for the cello by such composers as Haydn, Weber, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Saint-Saens and more.

"Fournier’s tone is a constant delight, warmly lyrical yet with a plangent edge that does wonders for the more pleading episodes of Dvorak’s Rondo — a work written for the cello, and making the fact very clear. His phrasing is beautifully shapely in cantabile. And when scurrying around in Francoeur’s Allegro vivo, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Bumble-bee and Popper’s Elfentanz, he brings a bite to the accentuation which keeps the rhythm both tingling and disciplined. The Weber is a pleasant surprise, but I particularly enjoyed the Dvorak, the Schumann (meant for the horn but with cello as an op-tional alternative) and the Brahms... Brahms’s particular brand of deep-hued sentiment is wholly at one with the soul of the cello." - Gramophone
