P0939. EDWIN FISCHER: Sonata #3 in f (Brahms); Fantaisie in C (Schumann), recorded 30 / 31 May, 1949, resp.; Fantaisie in c, K.396 (Mozart), recorded 24 May, 1934. (Canada) St Laurent Studio YSL 78-013. Transfers by Yves St Laurent.
“Fischer adds a Bachian purity to Mozart’s intimate utterance. The transfer is so expertly managed that one almost forgets it is a consideration, and Fischer’s justly famous Mozart is magical in its crystalline elegance.”
- Colin Clarke, CLASSICAL RECORD QUARTERLY, Autumn, 2010
“Not many pianists can equal the beauty of Fischer’s pianissimos and chordal playing – one completely forgets that there are hammers involved in the creation of these sounds.”
– Farhan Malik, INTERNATIONAL PIANO QUARTERLY, Winter, 2001
“Each of these disks, from Canadian engineer Yves St Laurent… [feature] St Laurent’s natural transfer – made without filtering, like all his dubbings – it is easy to listen to, despite the surface noise.”
- Tully Potter, CLASSICAL RECORD QUARTERLY, Summer, 2011
