Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
Ries's easy-going musical personality can lead him to blandness. But the melodies have charm...[in the Mozart] the playing, again, is crisp and polished, with nicely prominent bassoons, though the finale's high spirits are slightly muted.

cpo continues their exploration with Ries' Notturni for Winds, works exemplifying his great compositional talent. Although set for the same instruments, the works are very different in ambition and dimension. The recording also includes Mozart's Partita in B flat - better known as the Gran Partita - in the version for wind octet. This release is most highly recommended to all fans of good chamber music!

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The Schweizer Ensemble brings vigor and sincerity, embracing important passages with a kind of raw power that fits the music. In their hands Ries is a true minor master whose scores reflect diligent craft and an authentic spirit. Schweizer offers palpable energy and depth, and the group's rendition will surely draw interest. The effort is still worthwhile for curious listeners.
