Christian Ferras: L'Arte (DG & Decca recs) - DG 480 6655 (10CD box), rare
NM / made in the EU
This beautiful and now quite rare 10CD box set from Deutsche Grammophon (480 6655, made in the EU, mono and stereo, booklet included) entitled "L'Arte de Christian Ferras" features the great French violinist in all of the recordings he made for DG and Decca.
It includes several titles published internationally for the first time and one that has never been previously issued anywhere, a sublime account of Bach's Violin Sonata No. 3 BWV 1016 with pianist Céliny Chailley-Richez.
The glossy and strong outer box houses ten individual sleeves, each in a different color with full track listings on the reverse side. Also included is lovely booklet with numerous archival photos and other documentary information. Issued in 2012, the set had a short shelf-life and is not quite elusive.
