>Ries, Ferdinand : Die Rauberbraut (The Robber Baron), opera, Op. 156
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, January 2014
The Robber Bride, by a pupil of Beethoven's, shows his influence but doesn't share his genius. It has a general level of amiable competence, and gets at least as good a performance here as it deserves.

  • The debut opera by Ferdinand Ries, prolific composer and friend of Beethoven
  • The high-calibre solo ensemble is led by soprano Ruth Ziesak (Laura).
  • The WDR Rundfunkchor Koeln WDR Sinfonieorchester Koeln conducted by Howard Griffiths.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Ziesak has a pretty lyric soprano and shapes her words with a lieder singer's skill. The chorus is quite good. Conductor Howard Griffiths holds everyone together.
