P1077. EDWIN FISCHER, Vol. VII: Sonata #7 in D, Op.10, #3; Pathétique Sonata #8 in c, Op.13; Sonata #32 in c, Op.111 (all Beethoven). (Canada) St Laurent Studio YSL 78-202. 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
