Pierre Léon Marie Fournier (24 June 1906 – 8 January 1986) was a French cellist who was called the "aristocrat of cellists," on account of his elegant musicianship and majestic sound. He was born in Paris, the son of a French Army general. His mother taught him to play the piano, but he had a mild case of polio as a child and lost dexterity in his feet and legs. Having difficulties with the piano pedals, he turned to the cello. In the '50s he toured South America, often accompanied by Alfredo Rossi, a personal friend and former colleague during his early days in Italy and Spain.

  • Pierre Léon Marie Fournier (24 June 1906 – 8 January 1986) was a French cellist who was called the "aristocrat of cellists," on account of his elegant musicianship and majestic sound. He was born in Paris, the son of a French Army general. His mother taught him to play the piano, but he had a mild case of polio as a child and lost dexterity in his feet and legs. Having difficulties with the piano pedals, he turned to the cello. He received early training from Odette Krettly, and from 1918 studied with André Hekking and later with Paul Bazelaire. He graduated from the Paris Conservatory at 17, in 1923. He was hailed as "the cellist of the future" and won praise for his virtuosity and bowing technique. In the period 1925-1929 he was a member of the Krettly Quartet, led by Odette's brother Robert Krettly. He became well known when he played with the Concerts Colonne Orchestra in 1925. He began touring all over Europe. At various stages he played with many of the most highly acclaimed, prestigious musicians of his time, and recorded the complete chamber music of Brahms and Schubert for the BBC on acetates. However, these deteriorated before the recordings could be transferred to a more durable medium. He is also praised for his recordings of the Bach suites (Beethoven-Saal, Hannover, December 1960), which are regarded even now as some of the best versions ever made. His other discs include LPs of Beethoven's cello sonatas and Elgar's Cello Concerto; these have long since been available on CD. Fournier was a teacher at the École Normale de Musique in Paris and the Paris Conservatoire from 1937 to 1949. He made his first tour of the United States in 1948 and played to great acclaim in New York and Boston. His performance in America became an embarrassment when it was revealed in 1949 that Fournier had collaborated with the Nazis during the occupation of France. He was found to have performed 82 times on "Radio-Paris" – a German station – for which he had been paid a total of 192,400 francs. In France, the "National Purging Committee's Professional Branch for Dramatic and Lyric Artists and Performing Musicians" had found him guilty of collaboration, and had banned him from performing for a period of six months. In the '50s he toured South America, often accompanied by Alfredo Rossi, a personal friend and former colleague during his early days in Italy and Spain. After 1956, he made his home in Switzerland, although he never relinquished his French citizenship. He received the dedication of both Bohuslav Martinů's Cello Concerto No. 1 (1930, rev. 1939, 1955) and Francis Poulenc's Cello Sonata (1948). In 1963, he was made a member of the Legion of Honour. He continued performing in public until two years before his death at the age of 79. Until the end of his life, he taught privately at his home in Geneva: the British cellist Julian Lloyd Webber was among his pupils. His son Jean-Pierre became a pianist performing under the name of . Fournier played 3 instruments: a Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume 1863, a Matteo Goffriller 1722 and a rare Charles Adolphe Maucotel 1849. With the Maucoutel he played the last 18 years of his career and made all his recordings. (en)

  • Pierre Fournier (Parijs, 24 juni 1906 - Genève, 8 januari 1986) was een Frans cellist. Hij werd de "aristocraat der cellisten" genoemd, vanwege zijn elegante wijze van musiceren en zijn majestueuze geluid. Hij was de zoon van een generaal van het Franse leger. Zijn moeder leerde hem pianospelen, maar hij kreeg een milde vorm van polio en raakte de behendigheid in zijn benen en voeten kwijt. Vanwege zijn problemen met de pedalen koos hij daarom voor de cello. Hij voltooide zijn opleiding aan het Conservatoire de Paris in 1923 toen hij zeventien werd. Hij werd begroet als "de cellist van de toekomst" en kreeg lof toegezwaaid voor zijn virtuositeit en techniek met de strijkstok. Hij werd bekend toen hij in 1925 bij het Orchestre Colonne speelde, en maakte tournees over de hele wereld. Hij nam de complete kamermuziek van Brahms en Schubert op voor de BBC (deze opnames zijn verloren gegaan). Hij werd ook zeer gewaardeerd voor zijn opnames van de Bach suites. Ze worden nog steeds beschouwd tot de beste opnamen die van deze suites gemaakt zijn. Fournier gaf les aan de École Normale de Musique in Parijs en aan het Conservatorium van Parijs van 1937 tot 1949. In 1956 ging hij in Zwitserland wonen, zonder zijn Franse nationaliteit op te geven. Hij gaf er verder les. De Britse cellist Julian Lloyd Webber was een van zijn leerlingen. Hij ontving diverse onderscheidingen zoals die van Officier in het Franse Legioen van Eer, Officier in de Franse Orde van Kunsten en Letteren en Commandeur in de Belgische Orde van Leopold II. Tot twee jaar voor zijn dood bleef hij optreden. Hij overleed op 79-jarige leeftijd in Genève. (nl)
