Christian Ferras is doubtless one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, through the singularity of his instinctive playing, his powerful and visceral sound and his natural impetuosity. More than 30 years after his tragic passing in 1982, he still holds, via his recordings an outstanding fascinating hold, not only over music lovers, but also over young aspiring violinists of today. Universal thought they had covered the entirety of his discography, but a few recordings made in Japan in 1971 for the local subsidiary company of Deutsche Grammophon had fallen into oblivion.

Miraculously found recently in Ferras’s succession, they are now released for the first time in Europe and for the first time ever on CD.

Recorded 1948, 1951, 1971


... a worthy memorial to a huge talent tragically lost to us at the all-too-young age of 49.  Rob Cowan
