Reviews

‘Fournet’s [Prélude] is flowing and symmetrical in an atmosphereic and gently distant, but realistic, recording. The playing of the Concertgebouw here is silken and evocative, with subtle hints of lavender and grey.’ High Fidelity

‘These nicely phrased musical performances are very well recorded in both mono and stereo… I would think the new Fournet as good as any.’ Gramophone (Peer Gynt)
