Christian Ferras will most likely be remembered as the violinist who was filmed shedding tears at the end of the slow movement of Sibelius's Concerto in 1965, and who, after a dramatic downturn in his career, took his own life at the age of 49. And, of course, as the child prodigy from the French provinces who became - at the height of his fame - Herbert von Karajan's favorite violinist. His artistic personality was shaped by his utter, though humble, devotion to the music, demonstrated by his appropriate yet lively tone, elegant bowing, effervescent, energetic fingering and considered phrasing. The recordings of Christian Ferras with pianist Pierre Barbizet are of the utmost importance, with the musicians forming an inimitable partnership. The concertos in this collection showcase the violinist as a captivating soloist - Müller-Kray follows his every move in the Beethoven and Tchaikovsky with dynamic sensitivity, Gielen's analytical expertise within the Berg is unrivalled and Ferras's partnership with Blomstedt results in a profound interpretation of the Brahms.
