Notes & Reviews:

cpo continues its exploration of Beethoven's student Ferdinand Ries (1784-1837) with a disc dedicated to his overtures. His overture to Schiller's Don Carlos marks him as one of the first composers to pen an overture linked to a specific subject and intended originally for the concert hall. Ries wrote five enthralling examples of this genre, which was developed to provide music to effectively open concerts, grabbing the audience's attention without straining it.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Philharmonie Köln (11/18/2008-11/21/2008).



Reviews

Ferdinand Ries - A Relatively Unknown Composer
Along with the piano concertos released in recent times on the NAXOS label, this album has elevated my appreciation for the music of this pupil of Beethoven. Particularly enjoyable is the Overture Bardique which cites the familiar Welsh tune "All Through the Night".The sound quality is excellent,typical of the CPO recordings I have in my collection.
