The duo soon became inseparable and explored the sonata repertoire, namely all of Beethoven's sonatas of which they produced a recording in 1958 that was to leave its mark. Famous all around the world, they play everywhere. The Sonata for violin and Piano in A Major by César Franck which we propose here, recorded in 1963 for French television, is one of their hits. Stamped with a moving tenderness, this version has an astounding purity of sound. The violinist is hypersensitive and the tones he obtains with his bow are extremely moving.
Most of these can be found on two budget collections, Ferras-Sonates Romantiques and The Great Violin Concertos, and (post-script) all the DG sonatas were reissued in 2009 by Brilliant Classics, Ferras, Christian: Brahms, Schumann, Franck.
