P0957. EDWIN FISCHER: Das Donnewetter – Contradance in D, K.534 (Mozart); Piano Concerti #1 in d; #4 in A; #5 in f (all Bach). (Canada) St Laurent Studio YSL 78-092, recorded 1933-39. Transfers by Yves St Laurent.
“St Laurent Studio has provided a fascinating snapshot of Fischer’s greatness….Surface noise is retained, but its low level is easily assimilated into the listening experience.”
- Colin Clarke, CLASSICAL RECORD QUARTERLY, Spring, 2011
“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
