"Fournier's particular brand of lyricism suits these sonatas very well, and he sounds especially fine on the lower strings... and Fournier makes golden sounds. He takes the slow movement much faster than his rivals, but sings the more lyrical trio section with a sweetness that is wholly disarming. His performance of the finale of this sonata (No.1) is without question the best." — Gramophone
