Notes & Reviews:

It is no surprise that Beethoven, as Ries's piano teacher, had a shaping influence on the young virtuoso and budding composer, even if he did not give him instruction in composition. Ries's first composition intended for the public, his Opus 1, consisted of two piano sonatas which he of course dedicated to his teacher. As in his symphonies, so too in his piano sonatas: Ries grapples with his colossal model, and here too it is always astonishing how he forges ahead to find his own personal expression.

International Record Review
CPO's continuing series of music by Ferdinand Ries... seems to me one of the mist innately valuable of its many ambitious projects, revealing a composer of near genius
