About

The intense, searing performance of violinist Christian Ferras in works by Franck and Stravinsky.

One of the ten best violinists of the 20th century is French, and his name is Christian Ferras. Born in 1933, Ferras made a brilliant international career dedicating himself to chamber music with the pianist Pierre Barbizet. It is with Pierre Barbizet that he gave his first recital just after being awarded the second prize in the Concours Long-Thibaud in 1949. The duo soon became inseparable and explored the sonata repertoire, namely all of Beethoven's sonatas of which they produced a recording in 1958 that was to leave its mark.
